The Bakehouse presents Rab Wilson and a’ that...
The Bakehouse is honoured to host Rab Wilson - one of Scotland's top poets as our Burns Night guest. Rab has authored a number of celebrated poetry collections, worked with artist Calum Colvin on a book of responses to Burns and in 2017 was made Scots Scriever (Writer in Residence) at Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway, Ayr. So Rab knows his stuff about Rabbie to whom his tam o' shanter will be riotously tipped along with sharing other personal amazements from his own highly acclaimed work. Rab has also promised to bring along his guitar to add to the evening’s entertainments. Should be a great night out.
‘poetry to rival the best published in Scotland, or written by a Scot, in the past 30 years’. Scotland on Sunday
