Tam o’ Shanter | Halloween | Robert Burns
Welcome to our first newsletter, where we will provide you with monthly updates on Tamfest, all our other events and projects plus fun and interesting posts on topics related to Tamfest’s history and heritage! Tamfest 2021 has started out with a bang, with the success of our monthly Tam’s Sunday Club, showcasing the rich talent of Ayrshire and Scotland. Recently one of our Sunday Club performers, Ayrshire poet Tracy Harvey, had over 120,000 views, with people tuning in worldwide! Tam’s Sunday Club on Sunday 25th April will have an all-star line up with exclusive performances from popular Scottish folk singer Elsa McTaggart, world-renowned Scottish artist, writer and TV presenter, Lachlan Goudie, and Ayrshire’s international songwriter, Jamie McGeechan. This is one not to be missed!
This summer, Tamfest will also be starting the Young Tam’s Friday Club. A companion event to the Sunday Club featuring performers from Ayrshire and Scotland 18 years of age and under. More details to be announced soon! We have also been developing projects with the Robert Burns World Federation and Robert Burns Association of North America on a virtual takeover from July to September. This will feature performances from members worldwide from both organisations!
This year Tamfest will not be held on one day and instead will feature high impact and unique events over the whole month of October. We look forward to sharing more details on this soon!
