Thread Name: Burns night repertoire suggestions? (songs)
Subject: Burns night repertoire suggestions?
I've agreed to do a Burns supper set. I did point out to the organiser that I'm not Scottish and that I don't really do a full-on Scots accent (bar certain inflexions) but then he offered me surprisingly good money - a paid gig no less!
Anyway, it's a Burns night so obviously Robert Burns songs, and a few crowd-pleasing Scots chestnuts too. I already know and perform quite a few Burns songs and have a lot of Scottish repertoire, but it tends to the more obscure... so I'd be really keen to hear from experienced Mudcatters who've done a few Burns nights with recommendations of songs that go down well...
