Mark Wilson’s Scottish Musical Journey Stage 2 - Dumfries and Robert Burns

Mark is travelling the path the exiled border reivers would have used when they were forced off their lands by James I, heading northwards and westwards towards the coast - and towards Ulster. In Dumfries, he visits a house in Mill Street where Robert Burns lived from 1793. Eddi Reader joins Mark to perform the Burns song, ‘You’re welcome, Willie Stewart’ - and they visit Burns’ bedroom in The Globe, his favourite pub, where they chat about Eddi’s love for Robert Burns’s music, and also discover some fascinating etchings in a window….
