Don't be a Ramgunshoch Horse-leech! Get the Burns Night app and book, and get ready to party on January 25th
There’ll be no excuses for not celebrating this coming Burns Night in style now that the new Robert Burns Night app and book from Saraband are on the market. Whether you’re a veteran of the world’s greatest birthday party or you’re a Burns Supper virgin, this is the red, red rose of apps – a complete toolkit for your Burns Night celebration, wherever you are.
Available for download now on iTunes and very soon on Android, the Robert Burns Night app, which was featured in iTunes UK's NEW & NOTEWORTHY, The Guardian's apps blog and on BBC 6 Music, has been specially updated for 2013.
‘So whit’s new?’ you might ask. Well, you’ll learn how to cook the perfect haggis with recipes from Jo Macsween, author of The Haggis Bible and director of Macsweens haggis company, and then serenade its journey to the table with our tuneful iPipes, by champion piper, Finlay Johnston. Address the haggis in style, and then – to help you avoid looking like a ramgunshoch horse-leech – use our ‘flyte assistant’ to find the perfect Burnsian insults (or compliments) for your speeches and toasts.
To help you recite Tam O’Shanter with the best of them, listen to how it’s done by a leading pro, and then repeat it yourself with the aid of our autocue. Round your evening off with the best of Burns’ songs, arranged and sung by the inimitable Grace-Hewat-Polwart trio, and then the traditional version of Auld Lang Syne.
So download the app, buy Burns Night: A Freestyle Guide, don your best tartan and have a braw bard’s birthday party on January 25th. Slainte Mhath!
