Chief executive Graham Main said: “Despite being unable to host our Big Burns Supper winter fringe this year, there was no way we were letting Burns Night pass without a significant celebration.
“As planned, the eminently talented Eddi Reader will play host to an eclectic evening of comedy, music and mirth and our diverse programme will feature something to tickle every taste bud.”
KT Tunstall said she was delighted to join the celebrations.
“I feel honoured to have been asked by Big Burns Supper to step in and help save Burns Night in 2022,” she said.
“I love my Scottish heritage and Burns Night celebrations continue to play a hugely important role in the arts and culture scene, not only in Scotland but across the world.
“I can’t think of a better way to spend it than alongside exceptional talent such as Eddi Reader, Skerryvore and many more, as part of the diverse and inclusive Big Burns Supper event.”
