Tae The Bard

Auld Lang Syne, a global anthem


Robert Burns is Scotland's most successful cultural export and this episode of Tae The Bard celebrates 'Auld Lang Syne' - without doubt his most well-travelled work. His version of this traditional song has become an intrinsic part of a range of occasions, from weddings and new year parties to, of course, the Burns Supper. While the song is much loved, many misunderstand its true meaning and perhaps miss its deeper significance. Our guests have close links to the song that has become a global anthem. Folk singer and musician Mairi Campbell's recording made an appearance in the first 'Sex & the City' movie and even inspired her to create a one woman show.
