MacGregor's Bar in Inverness are going live online with a celebration of the life of Rabbie Burns this Friday at 5pm.

With an incredible line of musicians and speakers it looks like a night to be remembered, and to top it all it is free for anyone who would like to view online.

The line-up follows a traditional line up of speakers and songs and includes Anna Massie, from Blazin' Fiddles, giving a toast to the laddies, Inverness singer-songwriter Davy Holt making to toast to the lassies and fiddle player Bruce McGregor playing tunes throughout the night.

Also on the line up is Emily Smith and Jamie McClennan with songs. Piper Stuart Cassells will be playing the toast to the Haggis and Jo De Sylva will be sharing some bawdy verse, something not for the faint hearted.

One of the many highlights of the event will be Hamish MacDonald reciting Tam O'Shanter from Inverness.
