A fun evening of music, poetry, Whiskey & haggis celebrating the life of poet Robert Burns. Inspired by his Scottish ancestry, Seán Heely breathes new life into the rich traditions of Celtic music, engaging audiences with every bow stroke.

A U.S National Scottish Fiddle Champion and an award-winning Irish Fiddler, his music also encompasses classical, bluegrass and swing. Heely has performed with traditional music icons such as Irish fiddle legend Liz Carroll and cello virtuoso Natalie Haas. From lively reels and jigs to the haunting airs and songs of Scotland and Ireland, he seamlessly weaves ancient traditions with modern compositions.

Wine by the glass, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages is available in a bistro setting. The Arts Barn Pub is open one hour before the show & during intermission.
