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.

Yvonne Lyon from Greenock performs her song “All Is Not Lost”.
Yvonne Lyon from Greenock one of the ten finalists in the Burnsong competition and week-long workshop said:

“It’s been a real privilege to take part in Burnsong and to perform at the Scottish Parliament – an excellent experience, hard work but made me focus. It’s been a diverse group of songwriters and performers, who have all come together with no sense of ego and encouraged each other. It gives you a strong feeling that you’re part of a good music scene in Scotland and not just doing your own wee thing alone.”
