The Real Robbie Burns (Featuring The Celts), John Elliott Theatre, Saturday, Jan 27 at 8 pm, $30

The Real Robbie Burns featuring The Celts

This show explores the life & times of Scotland’s most famous son, Robert Burns, through song, stories, narration & dance. Performed against a backdrop of over 300 photographs of Scotland, this show is funny, musical, fascinating, entertaining & at times, irreverent.

Producer Eugene Rea says he’s surprised as no one has not yet made a movie of Burns’ life. Better known as Scotland’s bard, he was a truly fascinating and even controversial character. While his memory has been mainly confined to once a year Burns’ Suppers, few of the attendees really know much about the man, let alone understand the few pieces of his work that get an airing on these occasions.

Celtic music supergroup The Celts consist of some of the best known and most sought after musicians in their genre Their shows are true multimedia productions. Drawing heavily on the back-story, they entertain and amuse the audience as they delve into the true stories and anecdotes of the subject, celebrating his birthday, his life, songs, and all things Scottish.
