Lawrence Scottish Fest (Kansas)

Spent a nice evening celebrating Robert Burns and Tartan Day.  Lawrence, KS has moved their Robert Burns celebration from its usually unpredictable weather night in January to a more hospitable day in April that corresponds to Tartan Week.  There were pipers, musicians playing Scottish tunes and good eats from a local bakery.  This was their "15th annual celebration of traditional & contemporary Scottish music & culture".  I always enjoy this laid back evening of celebration and am pleased that it has moved to a more hospitable time of the year.  Now there will be less chance of forgoing the event because of icing roads! 

Lots of clips from past events can be found at their website http://www.lawrencescots.org/
