Bruce Coughlan, singer, songwriter and founding member of The Tillerâ€™s Folly, returns to his hometown of Aldergrove this weekend to help celebrate Robbie Burns Day.
Coughlan will be joined by North American fiddle champion Nolan Murray in entertaining at an annual Burns supper at Bobâ€™s Steakhouse Sunday, Jan. 26.
â€œWe are also proud to have Central Valley Community Pipe Band Major Steve Gallagher piping in the haggis and Major Ian Newby to address it,â€ said restaurant owner Bob Long.
â€œAnd along with the performances of Bruce and Nolan the evening promises to be filled with great music, poems and of courseâ€¦ foodâ€ Long added.
Long has hosted a Burns supper for more than a dozen years in Aldergrove â€“ boasting it as an international celebrations of sorts given that he is of Chinese-Austrian decent, but born in England on Robbie Burns Day.
Admission is $10. Seating is limited so reservations are a must at 604-671-8948.
Long is reportedly serving haggis made from a unique German recipe along with a â€œhaggis stuffed chickenâ€™ which is a dish that was featured at his previously owned Mexican restaurant.
Admission includes the entertainment, a bowl of traditional Scottish cock-a-leekie soup, along with a wee dram of Scottish whisky with which to toast the evening.
The â€˜piping inâ€™ of the savoury pudding is 6 p.m. precisely.
