Funky Burns
I really love this album by Mike Ogletree and i think he will reach lots of new fans for Robert burns. He brings a modern and exciting sound to the world famous and well loved lyrics of Burns with lots of catchy rythms, great for dancing too and very romantic in the case of Red Red Rose my favourite. Mike Ogletree has a great understanding and love for Robert Burns and it shows. I really recommend this album.
