Neu! Reekie!'s Burns on Fire
Neu! Reekie!'s Burns Nights have made their mark on the Scottish Cultural scene these past few years; each a swift sell-out; each a wild carousel of poetry, colour, visuals and music. As part of the ticket price food will be served: haggis or vegetarian haggis and tatties; with a few twists and healthy sauces. That and a complimentary whisky.

POETS - MUSICIANS - DJs - AND A WHOLE HEAP MORE

FULL LINE-UP COMING SOON.

SO FAR:

***********KATHLEEN JAMIE**************
was born in the west of Scotland in 1962. Her poetry collections to date include The Overhaul, (2012) which won the 2012 Costa Poetry Prize, The Tree House which won both the Forward prize and the Scottish Book of the Year Award. Kathleen Jamie also writes non-fiction including the highly regarded Findings and recently, Sightlines. Kathleen is Chair of Poetry at Stirling University (part-time), and she lives with her family in Fife.

"Quotation cannot do justice to The Tree House; whole poems are seamless, poised creations, the cadences persuasive. This is a nuanced, affecting book.Stephen Knight, the Independent


***********TAM DEAN BURN***********
Actor (Taggart, The Acid House, Young Adam, NTS), singer and Neu! Reekie! regular Tam Dean Burn does A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle: the first 100 lines of Hugh MacDiarmid's poem has much to say on Robert Burns.

Mair nonsense has been uttered in his name
Than in ony's barrin' liberty and Christ.

The first step in Tam's epic journey to learning the whole poem by heart.

***KEVIN WILLIAMSON***BARK COLLECTIVE***
Poet and performer Kevin Williamson - full indulgence - delivers a dark and unpredicatbale interpretation of Burn's Greatest Poem. Joined by the BARK Collective the troupe will present a provocative and subversive physical theatre performance featuring a feast of fire (frissons of fury people, this one is gong to Burn).


***********EMELLE***********
Also serving up a Burns enthused set our dear friends and brothers Emelle - plus some of their own gypsy-jazz, pop, folk, blues fusions.

'Craig Lithgow on guitar and vocals and brother Rhys on Cajun drum and vocal harmonies, both so in tune with each other their sound melted over the stage like warm chocolate Touting their own brand of "domestic blues", Emelle write songs about life, love, the quest for liberty and more  a sound worth checking out not just on New Year's
Day, but year-round.
