Multi-award winning Mairi Campbell is a pioneering Scottish musician: an improviser, ballad singer, violist and theatre maker. Her stage work is a response to personal stories and cultural concerns, bringing songs and stories to the stage. She extends the boundaries of traditional music, powerfully injecting deep craft, groundedness and spirit to the stage.  

★★★★★ ‘Exquisite blend of skill, art, vitality and expression...Join [Campbell] and be uplifted
Musical Theatre Review

 “The overarching way in which she has used her understanding of the Scottish folk scene, music, and her own life, in the creation of Pulse, makes it unique. Campbell agitates at the forefront of this notion of combining art forms….” Joe Peach, West Highland Free Press Feb 2016

“a mesmerising performer with such a gift for accents and physical comedy that it’s easy to forget her main job is folk musician” Andrew Eaton – The Scotsman .  

★★★★★ Bare and unabashed honesty…by the end of 'Pulse' you'll feel transformed.’  Three Weeks 

★★★★ Subtle and evocative…a story with local and global resonance.  All Edinburgh Theatre.com

 In 2008 her voice gained worldwide recognition when her version of Auld Lang Syne was placed in the blockbuster movie ‘Sex and the City’ in 2008. 

In 2019 Mairi Campbell founded a new ensemble called the Pendulum band, including her daughter Ada and her band Luna Blu. They create choreographed gigs and played at the Trad Music Awards in November 2019.   

Mairi lives in Edinburgh, Scotland.
