The Scottish Society of Martha's Vineyard
1st "Virtual" & 34th Annual Burns Nicht
Supper was Saturday, January 23, 2021
We'll keep the Burns Supper pages active
for a limited time only. Check it out!
The Burns Nicht recalls the life and influence
of Robert Burns through music, traditional toasts,
and a keynote address that is one of the
cornerstones of all Burns Nichts,
“The Immortal Memory.”
The basic format for this evening has
remained unchanged since 1796
at the first Burns Nicht Supper at Alloway
Cottage, birthplace of Robert Burns.
For January 2021 however, that
time-honored tradition had to change
because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
An Important Part
of Our History Has Just
been Discovered - Thought to be
Lost Over 33Years Ago!
Recently, Steve and Colin Ewing
went through the Society's archives and discovered
the lost VHS tapes of the very first two
Martha's Vineyard Burns Nicht Suppers
from 1988 and 1989!
We've combined elements of these videos
with recent Burns Supper content to create
an awesome, "Virtual" Burns Nicht Supper.
Over the years, the Society has been blessed to have
many members and guests to "Address the Haggis",
Toast the Queen and the President,
Honor the Lassies and Laddies, Pipe-in the Haggis,
and deliver the Selkirk Grace.
Imagine enjoying your own personal portions of Haggis
and other goodies in the comfort of your own home
with the likes of David Duncan, Bob MacKay,
Jo-ann Ewing, Mary Lambert, and other old friends.
For a limited time, you can purchase a DVD of the Society's
first-ever Burns Nicht Supper of 1988 for only $20.
Proceeds will go to our Scholarship Fund. What a great gift idea
for those who'd like to own a piece of MV Scottish history!
