The Silver Bough Ceilidh Band led by Donald and Jackie provided the poetry, music and dancing for Burns Night at historic Talton House on Friday evening, 26 January 2018. Talton House is a Queen Anne period building with history and charm. The bedrooms are named after family members, including ‘Dr Watson’ who was Queen Victoria’s doctor. For all its atmospheric high ceilings it has a fun, relaxing vibe and it sleeps up to 23 and hosts events for around 60 people.
A full house enjoyed a memorable evening, with bagpipes, haggis, old Scottish poetry and Ceilidh dancing in the large hall from early until late! It was a joyful evening with enthusiastic dancing and music led and performed by the impeccably dressed Silver Bough. In the photo below, we are relaxing in the ‘green room’ prior to all the revelry. Our thanks to Olivia and Barney for hosting the event and for looking after us so well.
