Rim Country Celts Ceilidh And Burns Tribute


The Rim Country Celts’ second Ceilidh is Saturday, Jan. 28 at the Payson Senior Center, 514 W. Main St.

The Senior Center chef will prepare stews, bread and scones that will be available for donations. Dinner, with Celtic and Gaelic music is at 5 p.m., followed at 6 p.m. by a performance by The Maschino School of Highland Dance with Klaire Rouse, Kiana Campbell, Kelly Lahera, Jessica Maschino, accompanied by piper Andrew Lahera.

At 7 p.m. there will be a tribute honoring Robert Burns, Scottish poet, by Dennis MacAlister, trustee and chairman of the Trust Executive Committee of Clan MacAlister.

A Burns supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, author of many Scots poems. The suppers are normally held on or near the poet’s birthday, Jan. 25, sometimes also known as Robert Burns Day or Burns Night (Burns Nicht), although they may in principle be held at any time of the year.

Burns suppers are most common in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

From 7:15 p.m. to 9 p.m. there will be Celtic and Gaelic music organized and staged by Anne James and the Cinnamon Twist Celtic Band. Dress is informal, but Celtic dress is encouraged.

Celtic T-shirts will be for sale. Memberships to Rim Country Celts will be available. There will also be a table set up to provide information on genealogy by the Northern Gila County Genealogy Society.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for children under 16.
