It wis ma 19t birthday yesterday (I feel auld...) an I gaed out wi a frein o mine tae see "The Lost Makar - A Medieval Tapestry" at the Netherbow in Edinburgh. It wis braw, it ralley wis. Umwhile Edinburgh makar Stewart Conn read frae a series o poems he wrate anent Roull o Corstorphine, a 15t century makar wha's warks is aw tint, but wha Dunbar murned is his ''Lament for the Makaris", alang wi a tait auld musardrie frae the samen period while John Sampson gied muisical interludes on a hail range o recorders, pipes an ithir blawy-hingmies I'd ne'er heird o afore. It wis a braw e'enin that gied a rale feel o whit it maun hae been like tae be pairt o the court life in the time o James IV - a muckle, magic, maisterly mixtur-maxtur o muisic an musradrie!
