Honorary Member of ‘Let it Blaw’
Became a member of ‘Let it Blaw’ 1977
While the above list of credentials looks impressive, it barely begins to sum up Jimmy’s contribution to ‘Let it Blaw.’
In addition to the above, add ‘The Twa Dogs’ on at least 7 occasions, a part in ‘Willie Brew’d a Peck o’ Maut’ on at least 4 occasions, an ‘Address to the Unco Guid’ a few times, countless other recitals, and it’s not surprising that Jimmy became Honorary President of ‘Let it Blaw’.
In 1997 ‘Let it Blaw’ enjoyed a unique event when the Toast, “The Immortal Memory of Robert Burns,” was proposed by Jimmy together with long-time friend and former colleague Hugh Fraser MBE QPM.
Jimmy died on 30th May 2017. His contribution to ‘Let it Blaw’ was immense.
