‘The bees, rejoicing o’er their summer toils,
Unnumber’d buds an’ flow’rs’ delicious spoils’
Join us next Monday June 22nd for the inaugural MIDSUMMER BURNS NIGHT at Iona. It’s all about the thrumming, free wheelin’, summer-lovin’ poetry and songs of the Bard, so we’ll be singing, declaiming, bagpiping, and raging around in our cutty sarks, dressing droddums and kissing barefit carlins. From 8pm at Iona, 180 Grand St, Brooklyn 11211.

A great cast of characters will be in attendance – Glenfiddich Champion fiddler, Calum Pasqua, Young Wolfetone Andrew Sharp, piper JR Strauss, Burns Scholar, Professor Thomas Keith and the Iona session band. Our Friends at Laphroaig will be offering tastes of their fine whiskies and there will be specials on Belhaven Ale and Crabbies Alcoholic Ginger Beer!
