Default Burnsn Nighty Tunes

Any suggestions for tunes to play for Burns' Night, particularly tunes used in Robert Borns' songs?

One of my favorites of his is:

Since you can pinch the high B: Ca the Yowes and Comin’ Thro the Rye, and if you’re really good at it, you could swing an older version of Auld Lang Syne.

Thanks, I already play Coming Through The Rye, will work up Ca' The Yowes. As much as I like the older version of Auld Lang Syne, I expect the audience I'll be playing for would want the one they're familiar with. Still, it wouldn't hurt to have two versions ready, eh?

Thanks, Roddy! I'll have to look up Duncan Gray. I know "There Was a Lad…" as "Rantin' Rovin' Robin" but haven't played it in a while. Good Call!

I knew Duncan Gray as " Ho, Ho, The Wooin' O'it- just found it, thanks.
