The sound of Burns filled the Parliament’s Garden Lobby as the ten finalists of the Burnsong song contest play a showcase concert hosted by the Presiding Officer, Alex Fergusson MSP.

“This is my second time in the competition and each year the participants keep getting stronger and stronger – reflecting how Burnsong is growing too. It would be a shame it if does not continue. Burnsong reflects on the past, brings things into the present and should continue into the future. The gig tonight should be intimate and atmospheric, in contrast to the rural and open space of last week in the song house.”
