Songs by Robert Burns were always a key ingredient of any set list in the days of Lomond Folk and remain so today when playing as both a solo artist and with Celtic Krystal. Robin was influenced by his late singing partner Donald Brown, who was a devotee of the works of Burns. Also, having worked with John Cairney, in his acting role as Robert Burns, Robin was motivated to start performing solo at Burns’ Nights. Closer to home, Robin’s enthusiasm for the works of Burns was his family connection with Kilmarnock, Ayrshire.
Robin has performed at Burns’ Nights in bothies, barns, community halls, masonic halls, hotels and political gatherings of most colours! He has also ‘chaired’ Burns’ Nights for many institutions.
