John Cairney - The Robert Burns Story (audio CD): A lovely mix of poetry, songs and story. Robert Burns is one of the great romantic poets and one of the world's great songwriters. He is also Scotland's national bard and the hero of the Scots and people of Scottish descent everywhere. This unique recording (75 mins) traces his life through an exciting part of the eighteenth century and provides not only an insight into the man, but presents some of the best known works of the artist.
The actorJohn Cairney, is without doubt Burn's best known interpreter in recent times. The two have become indissolubly linked through a series of performances beginning with the famous one-man show, 'There Was A Man', through Scottish television's 'Burns' and the first issue of this recording in 1976 as a double LP.
