Not that Celtic Connections has lacked for Burns festivities in the past, but this year we're making an extra big splash for his birthday, thanks to support from Scotland's Winter Festivals. Hosting the party here, at one of three shows in Rabbie's honour tonight, are the brilliant young traditional band Breabach, who'll be joined by a stellar selection of fellow Scottish artists - plus the odd surprise international guest - performing new arrangements of Burns songs and melodies.
As well as Breabach's own Ewan Robertson and Megan Henderson, featured singers include the great Dougie MacLean OBE and Kathleen MacInnes - the latter highlighting the Gaelic melodies to which Burns often set his words - while Blazin' Fiddles contribute more of the Bard's favourite tunes, as well as string accompaniment to the songs.
Scotland's own Liz Lochead will perform the Immortal Memory
