Robert Burns’ Speeches

Robert "Rabbie" Burns

Robert “Rabbie” Burns

Having attended many Robert Burns Dinners, all over Southern California, on the Isle of Man in the British Isles (where almost all of the members were first-generation Scots) and now ones put on by the Gold Country Celtic Society in Nevada City, CA, I can honestly say that the ones in Nevada City are as good as the best and better than most.  At these Nevada City Robert Burns Dinners, I have enjoyed the chances to be the toastmaster, do Immortal Memories and Toasts to the Lassies, as well as a responsive Toast to the Lassies and Reply with my wife, Kelly.  Burns was Scotland’s most famous poet and songwriter. Every year Scots, those of Scots descent and those who love a good party with fine whisky gather all over the world to honor him on or near his birthday, January 25th.  Here are a few of my toasts and such, with the text.  Feel free to use them.  Just click on what you would like to hear.
