Midsummer_Burns_hi2

‘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!

We’re super excited to welcome to NYC the tippiest toppermost players of the Scottish traditional music world, playing this weekend at Carnegie Hall. It’s a jam band with a touch of the highlands when Indian ragas meet Scottish strathspeys for The Pulse of the World, an evening of irresistible rhythms with Zakir Hussain—the reigning tabla master who has played with everyone from George Harrison to the Grateful Dead—laying down beats for Scottish fiddlers Charlie McKerron (of Capercaillie fame) and Patsy Reid (formerly of the fiery band Breabach), and master Scottish piper, Fraser Fifield. Pulse of the World is a freewheeling, pulse-quickening, constantly surprising fusion of Indian and Celtic sounds.  Tickets here.
