Mairi Campbell: Cancelled
Mairi Campbell is a pioneering musician receiving critical attention for her remarkable singing, powerful concerts and unique solo music theatre productions that push the boundaries of Scottish traditional music. Her music, which combines voice and viola, has a rooted quality, encompassing wide-ranging interests from Scottish dance music to soundings and improvisations.
Her voice has been heard worldwide thanks to her version of Auld Lang Syne, with David Francis as the Cast, being used in the pivotal New Year’s Eve scene of the blockbuster movie Sex and the City. Mairi’s portfolio encompasses concerts, music theatre productions and education work. In 2019 Mairi was inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame.
From her beginnings as a viola player Mairi Campbell’s musical questing has taken her to folk song, traditional fiddle, composition, song-writing, improvised sounding to her present creative place which blends and transcends the skills she has acquired in all of these areas. A performance by Mairi Campbell today takes her listeners on a journey with waypoints that include her own and a fine selection of others’ songs (with audience participation), improvised vocal and viola, Scottish dance tunes, and passages of Bach’.
