Burns Night 2013

The Ladymon School of Scottish Dance is gearing up for Burns Night 2013! This year's festivities will be held at the Bricktown Brewery in OKC on Saturday, January 26. If you still need to purchase tickets, go to, because you won't want to miss out on the fun!

Every year thousands of Scots (and honorary Scots) gather together across the globe to celebrate the life of Scottish poet Robert Burns. You may not recognize the name, but we bet you know at least one of his songs! He wrote the quintessential New Years tune "Auld Lang Syne." Throughout his short life Rabbie wrote many memorable poems and songs, engraving himself in the collective Scottish memory.

At Burns Night dinners toasts are offered, poetry is recited, and Scottish entertainment abounds. At the Bricktown Brewery, this year's entertainment will include traditional Celtic music from Black Oak Shillelagh, country dancing by the Black Sheep Ceilidh Dancers, rousing Celtic rock from crowd favorite Scotland Rising, and Highland dance by LSSD's Laura and Lauren, along with special guest Markayla Adam!

We hope to see you there!
