Charles Birnie, Strichen, exemplifies the North East: wry,
humorous, with an exquisite turn of phrase. A long-serving

also widely in demand for his perceptive presentations on
North East culture, language, song and poetry, often in the
company of Gordon Easton.
Listen to Mr. Birnie talking about old North East words.
