Free program. Part of the Robert Burns Weekend in Havre de Grace.

Calling all Scot-o-philes! Curious about Robert Burns, Scotland’s beloved national poet? Robert F. Lackey explores Robert Burns the man, the poet, and why he matters so much, even today, to Scots and people worldwide. A fun and wide-ranging talk.

Also, in this program, a film presentation of “To the Haggis”, and Burns’ poems set to music, including a sing-along with The Esme Trio.

“Some hae meat and canna eat, and some wad eat that want it, but we hae meat and we can eat, and sae the Lord be thank it.”

Robert F. Lackey

A native of Havre de Grace, Robert is the author of The Pulaski Saga, a novel series set along the canals near Havre de Grace from the mid to latter 19th century. We are honored to have him share his love of history and all things Scottish.

The Esme Trio features singers Mindy Elledge and Betsy Saik accompanied by Carol Simmons.
