Mercat Cross / Christie Simmons

JANUARY 24, 2025


Mercat Cross

Burns Night is always a popular event at The Rocky. We start off with a set from the lovely Christie Simmons. Robert Henderson will pipe in the haggis, and then Graham Tait will perform the Address to the Haggis. Following a few more pipe tunes (and a break for haggis!) the fun and energetic group Mercat Cross will take the stage.

Christie Simmons

Christie has been on The Rocky’s stage several times before, with My Son Ted, The June Bugs and more recently with Rob McConnell & Steve Goodchild. Her second album Learn You By Heart, has been called philosophical, intimate, physical and poetic.  Christie’s influences include heavy-weight writers such as Gillian Welch & Roseanne Cash, but she has a style all her own!
