Robbie Burns Events
As usual, January is a busy time for pipe bands! We had two Robbie Burns events. The first was our perennial event at Allen's on Wed, Jan 25th. We played several tunes, including lots of old favourites, like Auld Lang's Syne, Amazing Grace, and Scotland the Brave, as well as our signature Medley and our Jig Set. Following the "formal" show at Allen's we continued to jam at Dora Keogh's into the wee hours with lots of dyed-in-the-wool Scottish fans to cheer us on.
The second event was with a mini-band at the Toronto Scottish Rugby Club Robbie Burn's Dinner on Fri, Jan 27th at Hart House at the UofT campus. Somehow it fell to yours truly to lead the band. First time I've ever tuned everybody's drones on the fly with an electronic tuner. Hopefully the crowd didn't notice my rather limited tuning skills! Anyways, they fed us well, gave us beer, and after a very good little concert we went on our merry way.
