The Black Hills Celtic Society celebrates the birthday of Scots poet Robert Burns every year. The Bard of Scotland--the Ploughman's Poet--was born in the middle of the Eighteenth Century and died young. But before he went, he produced 12 children by four women and an impressive collection of poetry and song. His birthday, Jan. 25, is celebrated wherever Scots live throughout the world. And that includes Rapid City. SDPB's Victoria Wicks joined that group Saturday night.
