Auld Lang Syne
It's a time of year when people all over the world join in singing Auld Lang Syne, a song Scottish poet Robert Burns wrote and adapted from an even older piece of music. Here's a fine version of it with Emily Smith taking the lead vocal, supported by Jamie McClennan and her own band members as well as members of the band Breabach. Smith, an award winning singer and songwriter, is from the area in the southwest of Scotland where Robert Burns made his home.
