A Celebration of Robbie Burns in Coquitlam

A Celebration of Robbie Burns

Join Place des Arts for our annual celebration of Scotland’s National Bard, Robbie Burns! Fiddler Rosie Carver with Celtic band Blackthorn and a special guest piper feature the musical traditions of Scotland with a special focus on Burns’ songs and poems. Heart-wrenching airs and ballads, humorous songs with rousing choruses and lively jigs and reels are brought to life with Blackthorn’s luscious harmonies and complex instrumentation. The concert starts at 7:30 pm or come early at 6:00 pm to enjoy a delicious Scottish-inspired supper. A piping-in of the Haggis, followed by a recitation of Burns’ Address to a Haggis, round out the long-standing traditions that are a must at any Robbie Burns’ birthday celebration.
