Robbie Burns

Come all ye lads and lassies to the Zocalo Café to celebrate the Scottish Bard Robbie Burns on Saturday, Jan. 25.  Yes, there will be the traditional haggis with roast beef and dessert as well as poetry and a piper!

What a deal for only $20.  Reservations are recommended. Traditional Celtic music will be provided by The Black Swan Fiddlers. Music starts at 7 p.m.  If you like Celtic music and you want the pure drop, what better way to celebrate Robbie Burns Day than with traditional foot tapping Celtic polkas, jigs and reels?

New BSF vocalist Michael Harrison will delight you with his rendition of soulful ballads. The Black Swan Fiddlers consist of  fiddlers Caillie Gregory, Madelaine Guimond, Raven Lees, Mya Williamson with Paul Gervais on guitar and Jeff Buttleworth on mandolin. David Stevenson keeps it all together on fiddle, flute and penny whistle.

The Black Swan Fiddlers have been keeping the traditional Celtic music tradition alive and well in the Comox Valley for seven years.
