“Tae the Bard” Podcast


In 2019, Wilson was asked to join the Scottish Government’s “Tae the Bard” podcast, where she was interviewed by world-renowned Burns expert Dr. Pauline Mackay.

The series examined Burns from multiple angles, including Burns suppers, “Auld Lang Syne”, interpreting Burns through artwork and, of course, whisky and haggis. Wilson was interviewed about her experience as a poet and performer, and how she has re-interpreted Robert Burns work: both as a Burns supper host and when working with children.

Wilson has performed at Burns suppers including Glenfiddich’s Experimental Burns Night in 2018, Red Red Rose Festival in 2017, The Rum Shack’s Burns Supper in 2017 and ran a Burns poetry workshop at Edinburgh’s own St. Giles’ Cathedral in 2018.
