One of the most vigorous and accessible of English-language poets, Robert Burns, writing in his native Scots dialect, intended his compositions to be recited and sung. This recording, therefore, is most welcome, particularly for us Yanks, who have little familiarity with the sounds of the Highlands. John Cairney and a pair of musicians serve up 20 poems and lyrics with considerable verve and flair. For comprehension, the listener is advised to follow along with the texts.
