Browse > Robert Burns

Robert Burns (1759- 1796) was a master poet and song writer as well as a great collector of tunes and words. It is not such a well known fact that he had a great love of the fiddle and its melodies. It is understood that he himself played the fiddle in an amateur fashion.

The airs used by Burns for his poems were often the popular instrumental tunes of his day though he did use tunes from older collections and often turned to the compositions of Neil Gow. With the rise in poularity of Burns Suppers, and with more and more demand for the service of fiddlers of all ages and stages to provide entertainment, it is highly appropriate that the fiddle should be part of these, and other occasions for celebration these days.

This section includes books containing wonderful fiddle duet and trio arrangements of the works of Robert Burns. Also Burns song collections with lyrics and chords or full piano accompaniment.
