Kevin Williamson took to the stage on Burns Night to perform an explosive version of The Bard’s epic poem Tam o’ Shanter, accompanied by Craig Lithgow (guitar) and David McFarlane (violin). Here it is in all its glory, 25 minutes of devilish cantraip intensity. Kevin reflects afterwards to Summerhall TV on the poem and the trio’s performance. (Fri 25th Jan, 2014)
