Band of Burns

Burns Night at Kings Place

Scotland Unwrapped

Part of our Burns Night celebrations, we welcome Band of Burns, a unique collaboration of folk artists conceived by Alistair Caplin and Dila Vardar, who come together to celebrate the life, works & philosophies of Scottish poet Robert Burns.

Bringing elements of musical traditions of their homelands – Scotland, Ireland, England, Wales, and Turkey – the band is a tightly knit ensemble of musicians who all shine bright in their own right to create one of the most powerful and thought-provoking experiences. This distinct show celebrates the man with whom the band share the values he championed – equality, social justice and power of love – highlighting their pressing relevance amid today’s troubled times.

This event will last approximately 2 hours, including an interval.

‘Nourishing stuff beyond its times, another warm, welcoming stew to feed the bones’ The Guardian
