Mountain Aire Folk Music, will be performing at Yankie Creek Coffee on Saturday, January 25, from 2-4 pm. Corner Texas & Yankie Streets in Silver City.
January 25 is the birthday of Robert Burns, National Poet of Scotland (born 1759). Robert Burns helped save the Scots language (a derivative of Old English stemming from a different dialect than "Standard English").
We'll perform a few Burns songs including Auld Lang Syne, and some other Scots songs along with American & other selections.
If you saw the 2008 film, Sex in the City, you heard our friend Marie Campbell of Scotland singing the traditional melody for Auld Lang Syne, which we will also present (the melody-not the film:).
