About ‘Jolly Beggars Banquet’ with Pauline Vallance & Kevin Gallagher

If yer ‘wavering like the bauchie-bird’ you’ve come to the right place. Join Cheeky Besom Productions for an exciting night of music and literature celebrating Scotland’s national Bard, Robert Burns (1759-1796). Our ‘Jolly Beggars Banquet’ showcases the work of featured singer/songwriter and clarsach player, Pauline Vallance and editor and Burns researcher Kevin Gallagher. Our host for the evening is Jim Ferguson.

Pauline Vallance is a singer/songwriter and clarsach player from Ayrshire. She plays as many venues as possible from Tannahill’s Cottage to Stirling Castle, from folk clubs to the Barrowland and now she’s coming to the Glasgow Literary Lounge @CaltonBar. Vallance takes great inspiration from Burns and plays regularly for the Glasgow and District Burns Association. She has produced two CDs, Songs, Spells & Salsa Moves and Golden Slumbers. She has just received funding from Creative Scotland to produce another. For more information on Pauline Vallance: http://www.paulinevallance.co.uk/
