Robert Burns is perhaps the most honored of Scotland’s sons. Through his life, his songs, and his poems, “Rabbie” Burns captured the heart and soul of Scotland as has no other, kindling in his countrymen a fierce pride in their own culture and independence that endures to this day. Grand Junction’s own Celtic band, Fifth Reel and friends will share many of Burns’ most treasured songs and poems, and will play the hornpipes, jigs, strathspeys and reels that define Scottish Traditional Music. Fifth Reel is: Connie Smith, Norm Ashley, Mick Wilson, and Ron Young. They will be joined by special guests: President of Clan Cameron Robert Cameron, Highland dancers Sarah Reed and Kim Kelleher, and piper Shawn Stewart. Together they will create a multi-dimensional presentation truly honoring the star of this show, Robert Burns, and Scotland’s traditional music. Join us for Poetry, Songs and some Traditional Scottish fare. Tickets are $15 dollars in advance and $20 at the door. Event starts at 7:30p doors open at 7.
