0:21:590:22:02

Ladies and gentlemen,

0:22:080:22:09

she is regarded as one of the finest interpreters of traditional song

0:22:090:22:15

in these islands, so please give her a very warm Ulster welcome -

0:22:150:22:19

# Ooh, ooh, ooh

0:22:380:22:45

# I once was a maid though I canna mind when

0:22:470:22:51

# Still my delight is in proper young men

0:22:510:22:55

# Some one of a troop of dragoons was my daddy

0:22:550:23:00

# Nae wonder I'm fond o' a young soldier laddie

0:23:000:23:07

# Singing fa, la, la, la

0:23:070:23:09

# La, la, la, la, laddie

0:23:090:23:13

# The first o' my loves was a swaggering blade

0:23:160:23:20

# To rattle the thundering drum was his trade

0:23:200:23:25

# His leg was sae tight and his cheek was sae ruddy

0:23:250:23:30

# Transported I was wi' my soldier laddie

0:23:300:23:36

# Singing fa, la, la, la

0:23:360:23:39

# La, la, la, la, laddie

0:23:390:23:43

# But the godly old chaplain left him in the lurch

0:23:490:23:53

# So the sword I forsook for the sake o' the church

0:23:530:23:57

# He ventured the soul and I risked the body

0:23:570:24:02

# 'Twas then I proved false to my young soldier laddie

0:24:020:24:08

# Singing fa, la, la, la

0:24:080:24:11

# La, la, la, la, laddie

0:24:110:24:15

# Full soon I grew sick o' my sanctified thoughts

0:24:180:24:22

# The regiment at large for a husband I got

0:24:220:24:26

# From the gilded spontoon to the fife I was ready

0:24:260:24:32

# I asked for nae mair than a young soldier laddie

0:24:320:24:38

# Oh, laddie

0:24:400:24:44

# Oh, laddie

0:24:440:24:48

# But the peace it reduced me to beg in despair

0:24:550:24:59

# Till I met my old boy at a Cunningham fair

0:24:590:25:03

# His rags regimental they fluttered sae gaudy

0:25:030:25:09

# Oh, my heart, it rejoiced at my soldier laddie

0:25:090:25:15

# Sing fa, la, la, la

0:25:150:25:17

# La, la, la, la, laddie

0:25:170:25:21

# And noo I hae lived and I know not how long

0:25:240:25:28

# Still I can join in a cup and a song

0:25:280:25:32

# And while with both hands I can hold the glass steady

0:25:320:25:38

# Here's to you, my love

0:25:380:25:40

# My ain soldier laddie

0:25:400:25:45

# Sing fa, la, la, la

0:25:470:25:49

# La, la, la, la, laddie

0:25:490:25:53

# Sing fa, la, la, la

0:25:560:25:58

# La, la, la, la, laddie

0:25:580:26:02

# Oh, laddie

0:26:040:26:08

# Oh, laddie

APPLAUSE

0:26:390:26:41

Emily, you're from the same part of the world as Burns -

0:26:460:26:48

Dumfries and Galloway.

0:26:480:26:49

Do you feel a connection?

0:26:490:26:51

Yeah, definitely.

0:26:510:26:52

I mean, as a child, we had a lot of Burns in school,

0:26:520:26:56

we learnt his poetry, we sang the songs,

0:26:560:26:59

you could enter competitions within the school, that kind of thing,

0:26:590:27:01

so you almost were a wee bit sickened of him

0:27:010:27:04

by the time you left primary school,

0:27:040:27:06

and me starting a career in traditional music,

0:27:060:27:09

the first songs that I learnt,

0:27:090:27:10

I ran as far away as I could from Burns' material -

0:27:100:27:13

I looked older, pre-Burns, or just something different,

0:27:130:27:16

different subject matter.

0:27:160:27:18

However, I'm born and brought up in Dumfries and Galloway,

0:27:180:27:21

and as an adult, and having moved back to live there,

0:27:210:27:24

I love the connection that I have with him,

0:27:240:27:25

I love that I grew up looking at the same landscapes that he travelled,

0:27:250:27:29

on his jobs as a tax collector,

0:27:290:27:32

I've been to visit Ellisland Farm just recently -

0:27:320:27:35

and it's just magical to sense he's still there in spirit,

0:27:350:27:39

and I think it's amazing how his legacy lives on.

0:27:390:27:42

# Lang hae we pairted been

APPLAUSE

0:31:110:31:14

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the stage Mr Robert Burns.

0:31:190:31:25

APPLAUSE

0:31:250:31:27

"It is a well-known historical fact

0:31:310:31:34

"that a great portion of the people of Ulster

0:31:340:31:37

"are descended from Scottish settlers.

0:31:370:31:40

"From the circumstances of our Scottish descent,

0:31:400:31:43

"we can appreciate the character

0:31:430:31:45

"and admire the genius and poetry of Burns

0:31:450:31:49

"almost as much as the natives of Scotland."

0:31:490:31:53

Do you know who wrote that?

0:31:550:31:58

No less than the Mayor of Belfast in 1844.

0:31:580:32:03

Now, he was clearly a man of very good judgment.

0:32:040:32:07

"The genius and poetry of Burns."

0:32:090:32:12

I like that.

0:32:120:32:14

It's wonderful to be here in Belfast

0:32:160:32:18

for a celebration of my life and birthday -

0:32:180:32:21

especially as, this year, the celebration is on the 21st,

0:32:210:32:25

which means I can hae a pairty here in Belfast tonight,

0:32:250:32:29

and yin in Scotland next weekend.

0:32:290:32:33

As you may have heard, I do enjoy a guid pairty.

0:32:330:32:37

Hm!

0:32:370:32:38

Historical records don't say whether I ever visited Belfast,

0:32:380:32:43

but given there's many a nicht I canna quite remember...

0:32:430:32:48

there's every possibility.

0:32:480:32:50

I do have many connections wi' Belfast, though.

0:32:510:32:55

Belfast, in 1787,

0:32:550:32:58

saw the first published editions of my works outside of Scotland.

0:32:580:33:03

This was printed after the Belfast News Letter

0:33:030:33:08

published a selection of my poetry a year earlier

0:33:080:33:11

under the pen name of The Ayrshire Ploughman.

0:33:110:33:15

A hundred years after my birth, in 1859,

0:33:150:33:20

a great celebration took place here in Belfast at the Corn Exchange.

0:33:200:33:24

My granddaughter Eliza and her daughter Martha

0:33:250:33:29

were the honoured guests.

0:33:290:33:31

It was nae accident that the people of Belfast and Ulster

0:33:320:33:36

took me to their hearts -

0:33:360:33:38

for the people of Ulster and the people of Scotland are kith and kin.

0:33:380:33:43

In 1960, another Irish paper, The Irish News,

0:33:440:33:51

published this poem.

0:33:510:33:54

"'Nights with Burns are all the fashion,'

0:33:540:33:58

"Said the host, 'our Province o'er

0:33:580:34:02

"'Bonnie Scotland is our passion

0:34:020:34:05

"'Ulster Scots we, to the core.'"

0:34:050:34:09

Hm.

0:34:090:34:10

Nearly 60 years later, I, Robert Burns,

0:34:100:34:16

am pleased to see that you still have the passion...

0:34:160:34:20

and I'm delighted to see that I'm still..

0:34:200:34:24

very much in fashion.

0:34:240:34:26

APPLAUSE

0:34:280:34:30

APPLAUSE

0:37:530:37:55

Sylvia and Alan, you'll be singing a beautiful song for us this evening -

0:38:040:38:07

Fare Thee Well Love.

0:38:070:38:09

It comes from Nova Scotia and The Rankin Family.

0:38:090:38:12

You're both solo singers -

0:38:120:38:13

but what is it about singing together in a duet

0:38:130:38:17

that makes it so special?

0:38:170:38:18

-We have a good rapport, you know?

-Yeah.

-And that means an awful lot.

0:38:180:38:21

And it's a shared experience, you know?

0:38:210:38:25

-Isn't that right?

-Yeah.

0:38:250:38:26

It takes some of the weight of a performance off just an individual,

0:38:260:38:31

and you get to kind of spread it across so that it becomes shared.

0:38:310:38:35

This particular song from The Rankin Family

0:38:350:38:37

was sang by a brother and sister,

0:38:370:38:39

and my sister Violet and I used to sing together years ago,

0:38:390:38:42

until she was involved with the Great Britain ladies' hockey team,

0:38:420:38:45

so she had to commit her time to training for the Olympics,

0:38:450:38:48

and I started singing by myself, and that's where it continued -

0:38:480:38:51

but this song takes me back to those days when, as a family,

0:38:510:38:54

we'd sit around the fire and sing and play music.

0:38:540:38:57

We were speaking earlier about how, you know, in life

0:38:570:39:00

you'll meet with numerous goodbyes - different kinds of goodbyes -

0:39:000:39:03

and some will have a more superficial, temporary level,

0:39:030:39:07

and some will be a wee bit deeper, and then, of course,

0:39:070:39:10

there's the final goodbye,

0:39:100:39:11

and this song - it could be any of those, really, couldn't it?

0:39:110:39:15

Because it just says, "Look,"

0:39:150:39:16

you know, "I'll drink to you, I'll sing songs about you,

0:39:160:39:19

"but at the end of the day,

0:39:190:39:20

"I'll always be with you if you just have my heart."

0:39:200:39:22

# Fare thee well, love

0:39:240:39:27

# Fare thee well, love

0:39:280:39:33

# Oh, come back, love

0:41:140:41:18

# Oh, come back, love

0:41:180:41:23

# The sun and moon

0:41:230:41:27

# Refuse to shine

0:41:270:41:32

# And since I've gone, love

0:41:320:41:35

# Gone away, love

0:41:360:41:40

# This lonely girl's had

0:41:400:41:45

# No peace of mind

0:41:450:41:49

BOTH: # So I'll drink today, love

0:41:490:41:54

# Again no more. #

0:43:040:43:10

APPLAUSE

0:43:130:43:17

Jamie, sounds very Scottish, but actually,

0:43:210:43:23

you're a very long way from your native home.

0:43:230:43:26

I am, I'm from New Zealand originally.

0:43:260:43:28

Came over about 20 years ago, close to.

0:43:280:43:30

That's why I've got quite a strong Scottish accent now,

0:43:300:43:33

you'll probably pick up on(!)

0:43:330:43:35

We're seeing you on stage tonight playing the fiddle and the guitar,

0:43:350:43:39

but you first started with the fiddle.

0:43:390:43:42

Why was that?

0:43:420:43:43

Well, fortunately, cos my dad had a folk club

0:43:430:43:45

and they helped run a folk festival,

0:43:450:43:48

we used to get people come and stay with us

0:43:480:43:50

and one was this fiddle player from Canada called Leo Ready

0:43:500:43:53

who used to come and play

0:43:530:43:54

and he used to play this one tune, The Four Poster Bed,

0:43:540:43:56

and you hit the fiddle with the bow four times

0:43:560:43:59

to show the four posts of the bed

0:43:590:44:01

and I just remember sitting there as a six-year-old going, "What?!

0:44:010:44:05

"How's he not breaking that?!

0:44:050:44:07

"I need to do that," so that totally inspired me.

0:44:070:44:10

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:46:580:47:00

While Roving On A Winter's Night,

0:47:060:47:08

how did you first come across that song?

0:47:080:47:10

Well, that was a few years ago.

0:47:100:47:11

I was over here in Northern Ireland

0:47:110:47:14

to do some songs

0:47:140:47:15

for The Santer Sessions, a TV show,

0:47:150:47:17

and it was while we were here I heard a great American singer

0:47:170:47:22

and fiddle player called Lauren Rioux

0:47:220:47:24

and she sang the song on that episode

0:47:240:47:26

and when I listened to the lyrics,

0:47:260:47:28

I noticed that it was very close

0:47:280:47:30

to Burns' My Love Is Like A Red, Red Rose, the story of it,

0:47:300:47:32

so it's almost like a song that had travelled over to the States

0:47:320:47:35

and it had come back again

0:47:350:47:37

and I decided to learn it.

0:47:370:47:38

# While roving on a winter's night

0:47:470:47:53

# And drinking that good old wine

0:47:530:47:57

# Thinking about my own true love

0:47:570:48:01

# That broke this heart of mine

0:48:010:48:06

# She is just like the bud of a rose

0:48:140:48:19

# That blooms in the month of June

0:48:190:48:22

# She's like some musical instrument

0:48:220:48:27

# That has been lately tuned

0:48:270:48:31

# Perhaps a trip to some foreign land

0:48:310:48:36

# Over to France or Spain

0:48:360:48:39

# But if I go 10,000 miles

0:48:390:48:44

# I'm coming home again

0:48:440:48:48

# And who's going to shoe your pretty little feet?

0:49:050:49:10

# Who's going to glove your hands?

0:49:100:49:13

# Who's going to kiss your sweet, sweet lips

0:49:130:49:18

# Who's going to be your man?

0:49:180:49:22

# Well, I'll love you till the seas run dry

0:49:220:49:26

# And the rocks all melt in the sun

0:49:260:49:30

# I'll love you till the day I die

0:49:300:49:35

# Though you'll never be my own

0:49:350:49:38

# While roving on a winter's night

0:49:460:49:51

# And drinking that good old wine

0:49:510:49:55

# Thinking about my own true love

0:49:550:49:59

# That broke this heart of mine

0:49:590:50:03

# Thinking about my own true love

0:50:030:50:08

# That broke this heart of mine. #

0:50:330:50:36

Richard, you have amassed with Field Marshal Montgomery

0:50:370:50:40

so many trophies and 11 World Championship wins.

0:50:400:50:44

Do you ever sit back and think, "Whoa, how did I do this?"

0:50:440:50:48

Absolutely. When I started off,

0:50:480:50:50

I had a number of heroes in the pipe band world and one of them

0:50:500:50:53

would have been Pipe Major Ian McLellan from the Strathclyde Police

0:50:530:50:57

who won 12 World Championships and for me now to be one behind him

0:50:570:51:00

is just absolutely unbelievable.

0:51:000:51:02

To win it once for me was a dream come true, but to win it 11 times

0:51:020:51:05

is just an unbelievable experience when I sit back and look at it.

0:51:050:51:08

What do you think is the continuing appeal

0:51:080:51:11

of this international culture?

0:51:110:51:13

I think it's the music.

0:51:140:51:16

It's down to the music that's played by all the pipe bands,

0:51:160:51:20

traditional music played,

0:51:200:51:21

new compositions played, certainly at a top level,

0:51:210:51:24

cos everybody else takes their key to what to play from the top bands

0:51:240:51:29

and I think it's down to the standard of the music

0:51:290:51:31

that's being played.

0:51:310:51:32

And what music have you in store for us this evening?

0:51:320:51:36

Well, one of the sets that we're playing tonight starts off with

0:51:360:51:40

a slow air which we got from Brittany, it's called La Baum,

0:51:400:51:43

and then we're going into a traditional Scottish jig

0:51:430:51:47

written by Gordon Walker called The Fiddler's Rally.

0:51:470:51:50

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:55:410:55:43

Now, Robert Burns, we know he was a spontaneous man.

0:55:520:55:56

He was direct and he was sincere. He was also a true egalitarian.

0:55:560:56:03

His powerful song A Man's A Man For A' That

0:56:030:56:07

remains a potent rallying call against social and class inequality.

0:56:070:56:13

The sentiments it expresses are universal -

0:56:130:56:16

wealth, or lack of it,

0:56:160:56:18

and social class shouldn't be the measure of the man.

0:56:180:56:23

A man's character is his true pride o' worth

0:56:230:56:27

and, "The honest man, tho e'er sae poor

0:56:270:56:31

"Is king o' men for a' that."

0:56:310:56:34

Let us reflect on these words as we welcome to the stage

0:56:340:56:39

Robert Burns for the Address To The Haggis.

0:56:390:56:43

APPLAUSE

0:56:450:56:47

Thank you.

0:56:560:56:58

Good evening.

0:56:580:56:59

Allow me to mair informally introduce myself.

0:56:590:57:03

GUFFAW FROM AUDIENCE, LAUGHTER

0:57:060:57:08

Indeed.

0:57:080:57:10

In 1787, on a visit tae Edinburgh,

0:57:100:57:14

I was first introduced tae what is now Scotland's national dish,

0:57:140:57:18

the haggis.

0:57:180:57:20

-So taken was I with the wonderful aroma...

Your pin wad help to mend a mill

In time o' need

0:58:030:58:05

While thro your pores the dews distil...

0:58:050:58:07

Mmm.

0:58:080:58:10

HE BLOWS RASPBERRY, LAUGHTER

0:58:470:58:50

0:59:110:59:14

Poor devil! See him owre his trash

O how unfit!

0:59:270:59:29

But mark the Rustic, haggis-fed

0:59:290:59:32

The trembling earth resounds his tread

0:59:320:59:36

Clap in his walie nieve a blade

0:59:360:59:38

He'll make it whissle

0:59:380:59:40

An legs an arms an heads will sned

0:59:400:59:43

Like taps o' thrissle

0:59:430:59:45

Ye Pow'rs, wha mak' mankind your care

0:59:470:59:50

And dish them out their bill o' fare

0:59:500:59:53

Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware

Stalked by debt and illness,

Burns died at Dumfries on 21st July, 1796,

1:12:301:12:36

aged just 37.

1:12:361:12:39

His funeral was held on the same day his son Maxwell was born.

1:12:391:12:44

His passing was marked by William Wordsworth with these words...

1:12:441:12:50

I mourned with thousands, but as one

1:12:511:12:54

More deeply grieved, for he was gone

1:12:541:12:57

Whose light I hailed when first it shone

1:12:571:13:00

And showed my youth

1:13:001:13:02

How Verse may build a princely throne

1:13:021:13:05

On humble truth.
