Charles Birnie


Charles Birnie, Strichen, exemplifies the North East: wry, humorous, with an exquisite turn of phrase. A long-serving minister in the North East and elsewhere in Scotland, he is also widely in demand for his perceptive presentations on North East culture, language, song and poetry, often in the company of Gordon Easton.
