Appalachian Highlanders Pipes and Drums is once again hosting this year's Burns Night to celebrate the life of Scotland's national bard.

As a Jacobite at heart, Burns was an avid proponent of the American Revolution and an ardent fan of George Washington, even writing an ode to celebrate George's birthday! We are thrilled to be hosting this evening's celebration at the historic Tavern Restaurant in Abingdon, VA, built in 1779. Come join us!

Tickets are $50 and include entertainment, meal (traditional haggis, neeps, etc.), and non-alcoholic drinks. A CASH BAR will be available.
