Burns Supper at Edinburgh FC / EFC
THIS year's event promises to be a most entertaining evening. As usual there'll be haggis, bashed neeps and champit tatties with The Immortal Memory given tonight by Gary West from the School of Scottish Studies where he is Professor of Scottish Ethnology.
As our first Burns' Supper at UCC we're looking forward to seeing what comes out of the kitchen downstairs and we're sure it will be beautifully cooked, delicious home-made plate of haggis, bashed neeps and champit tatties.
Gary West of course, is well-known not just as Prof West but he is also one of Scotland's noted and quoted bagpipers and in that role currently plays with the famous Atholl Highlanders while he is presenter of BBC Radio Scotlands Pipeline. Gary also plays guitar, whistles and sings. Some of you may have seen Gary in the superb trio BrÒg who EFC booked twice in less than 12 months (unusual to do so but totally justified - excellent band).
There'll also be the Toast To The Lassies from Dave Francis and the reply to that by Prof Margaret Bennett, lovely singer and renowned folklorist Widely regarded as Scotlands foremost folklorist she wears her scholarship lightly, lecturing, singing and storytelling and on both sides of the Atlantic.
And to kick off the festivities Bill MacDonald will pipe in the haggis, Roddy MacDonald will deliver the Address To The Haggis and Jean Bechhofer will give the Selkirk Grace all compered by the inimitable Allan McMillan.
