Home Free Sings: Auld Lang Syne

Scottish poet Robert Burns is credited with penning the poem known as “Auld Lang Syne” in 1788. He was quick to admit, however, that he’d been inspired by a drinking song he’d heard an old man singing in a pub.

Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians 
Canadian bandleader Guy Lombardo helped to make the song a New Year’s Eve icon. Lombardo and His Royal Canadians first played “Auld Lang Syne” on a national radio broadcast at midnight during a New Year’s Eve party held at New York’s Roosevelt Hotel in 1929, and it immediately struck a chord with listeners."
