Whether you are holding your own Burns night party, or an office event. I am able to pipe in the Haggis and Address the Haggis in full kilt. All you need to do is to have your haggis (or any other food!) at the ready!

Vicki is a great musician and thoroughly charming to deal with. Not afraid of work - in fact she loves it! Highly recommended, especially if you want Swedish folk music.
