Robert Burns goes back to school with Celtic Connections

Robert Burns

This week pupils at Parkview Primary School in Glasgow were joined by a tribute to Scotland’s favourite son, Robert Burns, as they prepare to take to the stage for a unique performance at Celtic Connections.

For the past two weeks Primary 3 pupils at the school have been learning about the life and times of Robert Burns, exploring his poetry and songs in preparation for what’s set to be a show-stopping performance at this year’s Celtic Connections, as part of the festival’s education concert series.

The EventScotland funded initiative enables young people to learn about Scotland’s traditions and background as well as introducing them to cultures from across the world.

On 25th January the musical pupils will take to the stage with the Celine Donoghue Band to perform a series of Robert Burns’ songs. Celine was a member of Scottish folk band Calasaig and has performed at high profile gigs across the globe, including the inaugural Burns Memorial Lecture given by Kofi Annan at the United Nations, New York in 2004.
