Neu! Reekie!'s Burns Nights have made their mark on the Scottish Cultural scene these past eight years; each a swift sell-out; each a wild carousel of poetry, colour, visuals and music.
This one features: LIZ LOCHHEAD * MALCOLM MIDDLETON * THE BUM-CLOCKS * DJ BUTTZ * TOM MORGAN-JONES * KEVIN WILLIAMSON & MICHAEL PEDERSEN & more.
Ticket price includes: haggis/vegetarian haggis, tatties and sauces. That and a complimentary GLEN GRANT whisky / dram or two. Food is canteen style portions (not a three course dinner - just saying).
LIZ LOCHHEAD - poet, playwright, artist; Scotland's second Makar/National Poet and Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry Winner.
MALCOLM MIDDLETON - guitarist/songwriter best known as a founding member as alternative rock band Arab Strap. Also, releases under Human Don't Be Angry and MM - most recently Bananas with Triassic Tusk Records.
THE BUM-CLOCKS - Leith’s Bum-Clocks are the only Robert Burns tribute band who play in the style of Iggy and the Stooges. The Bum-Clocks – ye olde Scottish name for a beetle, making them the Scottish Beatles – are Tam Dean Burn (actor), Russell Burn (Fire Engines/Trama Dolls) and Malcolm Ross (Josef K, Orange Juice).
DJ BUTTZ - is the mighty art supremo Morvern Cunningham who'll be bringing us a Bollywood infused disco to close the night.
TOM MORGAN-JONES - is an award winning illustrator. His work is widely and internationally published, from Children's books and magazines to satirical boardgames.
KEVIN WILLIAMSON & MICHAEL PEDERSEN are prize-winning poets and founders of Neu! Reekie!
