Mairi Campbell joins us all the way from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival! Not to be missed!
Mairi is a viola player, singer and songwriter whose music has a rooted and powerful quality. She is also a mum, wife and sister, who enjoys Scottish dancing, cooking, meditating, drawing, and more. For her theatre show Mairi Campbell: Pulse, Mairi put pen to paper to create the dot drawings that are beamed on stage throughout the piece.
Mairi is also incredibly grateful for any donations. Your financial support helps her continue to make her music and bring art to communities in Scotland and further afield.
Mairi Campbell is an influential and pioneering figure in Scottish music. Her music has a rooted and powerful quality and her musical interests are wide ranging: from playing Scottish dance music to pushing the boundaries of the traditional music scene with her soundings and improvisations.
Mairi won Instrumentalist of the Year 2016 at the Scots Trad Music Awards. She has previously won Scots Singer of The Year and Tutor of The Year. She has also received the Live Ireland Music Award for Best Female Musician of the Year and for Best Composition of the Year.
