Euan Morton is homesick- but he sure picked a good year if he needed help getting over it! 2009 marks the 250th anniversary since the birth of Scotland's most famous songwriter and poet, Robert Burns. Burns (world famous for penning Auld Lang Syne) wrote hundreds of beautiful songs and poems. To celebrate, Scotland is calling '09 the Year of the Homecoming. With musical and theatrical events taking place all around the globe it's a fine time to be Celtic! To mark this great occasion and to bring a wee piece of home to New York City, Euan is performing his new one man show, Caledonia: Songs for the Homecoming through the last 3 weeks in June. From the works of 'Rabbie' Burns and even traditional Irish songwriters through to more modern Celtic fare this night promises to be a fantastic one for all those who have a little of the islands in them! As Bryan Reeder returns on piano and Maud Reardon (all the way from Ireland) provides violin and vocals, Caledonia promises to be a night not to be missed. And don't worry if you can't remember what you did with your kilt and sporran, Euan promises that June is his month for showing his legs off! No one will be turned away. As they say back home "Céad Mile Fáilte"!
