In honor of Robert Burns whose work was read by Abraham Lincoln, quoted by Sam Houston, and revered for giving the common man a voice, The Robert Burns Society of West Texas sponsors an annual Robert Burns birthday celebration at the Texas Tech University International Cultural Center in Lubbock, Texas. On January 25, 2020 at 6:00 pm, the Burns Supper celebration will offer a prime rib dinner alongside traditional Scottish haggis, neeps (mashed turnips), and tatties (mashed potatoes). A Scotch whisky tasting is included, featuring varieties from all over Scotland. After the traditional Toast to the Lassies, the Lassies' Reply, and a memorial address, the evening concludes with a Scottish song and music concert featuring Texas' own resident Scottish folklorist Ed Miller accompanied by Jil Chambless and Scooter Muse.
