Happy Hogmanay!

  • Hogmanay: New Year’s Eve in Scotland
  • Auld Lang Syne: old long ago, i.e. days gone by
  • A guid new year to ane an’ a’: a good new year to one and all

As the bells ring in 2018 tonight, many of you will be singing Auld Lang Syne, the famous poem by Robert Burns. It must be one of Scotland’s most recognisable gifts to the world – but did you know it originally had a different tune? Listen to The Cast’s haunting recording above and I swear you will never think of the song in the same way again. I first heard this version in the Sex and the City movie (don’t judge me) and loved it, so I offer it as my New Year’s gift to you.

Here’s to a wonderful 2018 for all of us. A guid new year to ane an’ a’.
