The Three Craws had a great time in Dumfries on 25 January 2015 celebrating Scots bard Robert Burns’ birthday! We were thrilled to do three rehearsed readings of ‘The Three Craws Gaun Tae Rabbie Burns Birthday Pairty At The Globe Inn, Dumfries’ on Rabbie’s actual birthday in his actual howff where he would gather for blethers with friends and also wrote poetry. Here are The Three Craws lined up from left to right:
Craw One – Wesley Bradd
Craw Two – Bob Mitchell
Craw Three – Melissa Bradd

I then went to Australia with clipper ship City of Adelaide and the Craws had a well-earned rest.

I ordered some Haggis Truffles (seriously!) from Thinking Chocolate in Edinburgh, stuffed them into the boxed sets of mug and coaster and took them down to Dumfries, where they galloped away faster than Tam ‘O Shanter’s horse, Meg!
We returned to Dumfries on 31 January 2015 for the close of the Big Burns Bash. Here are the Craws again, this time Craw Three is Alice Kinloch. This was her first ever outing as a Craw, and she did a fantastic job.
Here are The Three Craws outside Robert Burns House where we did two shows. Hugh Brydon http://www.hughbryden.com/ came along and I was really privileged and delighted when he presented me with this beautiful pure silk signed limited edition tie …
