to the Memphis Scottish Society's website!

We exist to promote an understanding in “things Scottish,” through programs at our Monthly Meetings, and support for individual’s studies of Scottish heritage, history, and culture.

Come and meet us at 6:00 PM on the second Monday of the month for the Monthly Meeting at Jason’s Deli at Highland & Poplar. Each meeting includes a presentation of Scottish interest. There are also several informal gatherings throughout the year, such as our Annual Ceilidh (party) and our Annual Picnic.

The highlight each year is the Burns Nicht Supper, a celebration of Scotland’s poet, Robert Burns on the Saturday in late January closest to his birthday on the 25th.

Details on our Events are posted on this website as plans progress.


Thanks
John Schultz
President

Why Bother with the Bothy Ballads?
Sammy Rich will lead us through a conversation and participation on several Bothy Ballads and their destination to the Music Halls of Scotland, and then ask why do we bother learning these old songs that can be difficult to understand? And, by the way, what is a “bothy?”
