Looking ahead to Tartan Week.  First Peter Dobbins of Storm Theatre talks about Boucicault; Choreogrpaher John Scott of Irish Modern Dance Theatre describes “Fall and Recover,” a work danced by survivors of torture. Director Johnny McKnight of Glasgow’s Random Accomplice tells us about  Douglas Maxwell’s “The Promise,” and recites a little Robert Burns.  Camilla Hellman and Alan Bain of the American Scottish Foundation, Margaret Kennedy of the National Tartan Day New York Committee, and Leslie Denninger of the Caledonian Club talk about Scotties and parades.   Song of the week? from the Tannahill Weavers!
