One of the best all round compilations of the works of Robert Burns has been created by the Court of Equity and produced by Greg Freil and Douglas McQueen Hunter. Several years of research, planning and recording have culminated in the release of two magnificent studio albums celebrating the life and works of Robert Burns.

The works of Robert Burns are beautifully brought to life by the Court of Equity. Robert Burns himself took great pride in ensuring that his words reflected life in every part of his beloved Scotland and ‘Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect’ is as relevant today as it was when written in the 18th century.

‘Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect’ – Volumes 1 and 2 contain thirty nine pieces of the magnificent works of Robert Burns. Over twenty pieces of music and song celebrate the genius of the Bard. His journeys to Edinburgh, the Lothians, the Borders, the Highlands and beyond all fuelled his songs and poetry which the world continues to celebrate.

Sixteen excerpts of his literary gems are performed by eminent Burns enthusiasts including Alex Salmond, First Minister of Scotland, the late Dr Ken Simpson, founder of the Centre for Scottish Studies at Strathclyde University, Present and Past Presidents of The Robert Burns World Federation – Jane Brown and Wilson Ogilvie, Gordon Johnston from The Howff Burns Club in Dumfries. Author and historian Colin Hunter McQueen and President of Irvine Burns Club – Ian Doole are joined by the Kilbirnie Roseberry Burns Club members – Jim Thompson, Archie Comrie, Stepehn McConnachie and Alex Kelly. Jim Bowes of the West

Lothian Burns Club and ‘World Tam O’Shanter Champion’ David Scott past president of the Borders Association of Burns Clubs contributed to the performance.
