FRIDAY JANUARY 19.     Robbie Burns Night with After The Storm,

                                      Piper Robert Henderson and
                                      Address to the Haggis by Graham Tait


 

Piper ROBERT HENDERSON will pipe in the haggis and play a selection of popular pipe tunes.  GRAHAM TAIT of the band After The Storm will perform the Address to the Haggis and give us a Robbie Burns poem or two. 



The evening will include the group AFTER THE STORM featuring Graham Tait on accordion and vocals, Rod Walsh (guitar and vocals), John Thiel (bass,vocals) and Scott Duncan (fiddle). After The Storm is well known around Calgary for their lively Scottish dance music. This lineup played for some years as the house band for the Calgary Folk Club. You can expect a lively mix of traditional dance tunes, along with some fine vocal pieces by Rod, lots of laughs and perhaps one or two songs inspired by Robert Burns.


A fine plate of Haggis - no ketchup required!!
