Prior to receiving the award, R.H. Thomson was persuaded to give "The Address to the Haggis." Being a good sport he agreed, and ended up delivering a truly unique and remarkable rendition. We are assured that the particular accent he used was one spoken in a region of Scotland that experts have yet to indentify!

During R.H.'s recital, a verse-by-verse explanation was presented by Douglas Gibson who composed his erudite "translation" of Robert Burns's famous poem several years ago.

A very big thank-you to Blanche McMillan for recording this event on her phone.
