Alloway Burns Club have been compiling videos of Club activities for a while now and we felt it would be a good idea to link to their YouTube channel so you might also view their activities. Go to this link : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3ei-N_kdD93wBfoqsXOCpQ/videos
New Cumnock Burns Club, a sub group of the aforementioned Club calling themselves ’Burns Club Blethers’ have been meeting 3 times a week, via Zoom, since the end of March.
These evenings have included quizzes, poetry readings, analysis of poems and ‘show and tell’- type topic nights. They have also had on-line Burns Suppers and Scots Verse Nights (Sangs and Clatter). One of their members, Bobby Jess, was inspired to broadcast Daily Poetry Readings via Facebook and Youtube (which he sustained without a break for 3 months!).
In discussing other options for Zoom they developed the idea of a Video Podcast which would allow Burnsians to get to know the personalities behind cronies that they had seen speaking, reading or singing at Suppers, conferences and other Burns events.
They also hope that it will provide a bit of an oral history for future generations. It has been very well received, so they intend to continue to record and broadcast them, so long as cronies come forward as willing volunteers. They normally publish a new episode around 12 noon on a Sunday.
