The Nations Bard
Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o' the puddin-race!
Aboon them a' ye tak your place.....
Who better for a Burns Event than an Ayrshire man.
My journey with Burns has always been, even if at times I didnt know it myself. Born and raised in Ayrshire the Bard is an ever present part of your world Burns Suppers, Statues, Recitals, Tea Towels and even being taught Burns at School.
And it would seem that connection influenced my life more than I could ever have realised.
We both followed similar paths, leaving our small towns for Auld Reekie to seek our fame and fortune, Burns on the back of a Donkey, myself in a beat up automatic Fiat Panda....Burns won on comfort for that one.
And then there is our Professions, Burns a poet and master of verse, and I am a Storyteller, were both men of the spoken word, performers and entertainers.
And with that in mind, this is why I am yourt perfect choice for any Burns event. Whether it be to Host your event, deliver the Immortal Memory, Address the Haggis or more.
