Burns Night Celebration in Jericho, Vermont

January 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

$30

Ian Gauthier – Master of Ceremonies
There’s no time like the present to raise a glass to the legacy of Robert Burns. Step through time and celebrate the life and work of Scotland’s revered, national poet, Robbie Burns. The Burns night tradition started soon after the poet’s death in 1796, when several of his friends gathered to celebrate Burns’ life and work. The tradition has continued around the world for over 200 years. Join Catamount Pipe Band of Vermont and the Vermont Institute of Celtic Arts as we celebrate the works and life of Scotland’s National Poet.

This evening will be filled with good food, music, and stories to celebrate the works of Robbie Burns. Before dinner, the host recites The Selkirk Grace – the prayer of thanks written by Burns. Next, the haggis (including a vegetarian version) is piped in. This rotund wee bag of sheep’s innards was so revered during Burns time that it is introduced with a reciting of one of Burns’ most famous poems, “Address to a Haggis”. The evening ends with the singing of Auld Lang Syne, attributed to Burns, and all guests are invited to sing along. So sit back and enjoy the evening as Ian Gauthier, MC, singer, and story-teller leads us through the celebration. There will be copious amounts of music performed by the Catamount Pipe Band, special guest singer – Rev. Arnold Thomas, Green Mountain Celts, and a growing list of other musicians.
