It is believed he wrote most of the popular tune.

In keeping with time-honored Scottish traditions, Sharpe House Robert Burns Night 2024 will be held on January 20th, which is close to the beloved poet’s birthday on January 25th. According to the lore, the tradition of celebrating his life and legacy with what was known as “Burns Suppers” started in 1802, a few years after his death.
