Caledonia Swing to play at Burns Night January 21
The Friends of the Scottish Tartans Museum will host its 16th Annual Burns Night Dinner at Tartan Hall, Franklin Presbyterian Church on Jan. 21, with the Calling of the Clans at 5:30. Honoring the 253rd Birthday of national poet Robert Burns, who is credited with preserving Olde Scot music, this event is held all around the world on the closest date to Burns’ birthday, Jan. 25.
A five-course Scottish Dinner along with the traditional haggis tasting will be followed by recitations and a program of all things Scottish. Caledonia Swing will perform Scottish reels, jigs and background Celtic aires during the meal and play for the Scottish Country Dancing that is always part of the celebration.
