Robert Burns, the national bard (poet) of Scotland was born on the 25th January, 1759. Scotland and all Burns fans the world over, including Librivox, were celebrating the 250th anniversary of Burns' birthday throughout 2009 and it seemed only proper to record a collection of his poems and songs. This collection also includes works from other poets and writers who have written about Burns. (Summary by Joseph Finkberg)
