Mairi Campbell is a pioneering figure in Scottish music. 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.
As a solo performer Mairi blends viola, voice and keyboard skills with a range of music that goes from traditional ballads to her unique soundings often with audience participation.
Mairi is a great interpreter of J.S Bach and she often plays unaccompanied Bach in her concerts.
Mairi has won several awards for her musicianship including Instrumentalist of the Year and Scots Singer of The Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards.
Her solo theatre show "Mairi Campbell: Pulse" is the story of Mairi’s quest to heal cultural wounds and to "come home". She weaves live viola, voice, animation, movement and storytelling with tracks from her groundbreaking album Pulse.
Mairi's new Fringe show explores Robert Burns' beloved anthem to friendship: "Auld Lang Syne".
She was invited by Bill Clinton to sing this for Sean Connery's lifetime achievement award, and in 2008, her interpretation of this song was featured in "Sex & The City: The Movie".
In her show, she takes a deeper look at this Burns' classic, unpacking its history, its musical secrets, and its personal resonances through storytelling, dance and song.
"Prepare to get lost in the evocative music of Mairi Campbell... exquisitely rendered… skilled viola playing... magical"
