The tour starts tomorrow 

Hi folks,

Tomorrow! (Saturday) is the start of the tour at An Tobar and Mull Theatre, Tobermory. Tickets also on the door.

Then Aberdeen on 24th, Perth on Burns Night, Hawick on 26th and Edinburgh on 27 and 28th.

I left Lismore on Thursday to get to Edinburgh for rehearsals. I left at 7am in the snow, worrying about the roads, but didn’t need to. Oban was pretty clear. I then headed straight to Dave Grays and recorded 6 songs in the afternoon, for an EP of new stuff plus a single. Then back up to Mull today. At least the weather’s due to get milder so that’s a relief for travelling.

I’m really looking forward to sharing the story of Auld Lang Syne and getting on stages again. It feels like a long time since I was there, but I think many musicians and artists are feeling like that. 

Also just to mention that I also have an online workshop with Dawne McFarlane on the 4th February. And the online fiddle classes start on 30th January.

More details below. Hope to see you for the show.

What does this song mean anyway?

Hi folks,

That was fun! I played three gigs with the Occasionals around Hogmanay. It’s always a lift to play with Freeland, Kevin and Sheila. We were in Glasgow (a wedding), Stockbridge (Colonies annual) and Kingskettle, Fife (Christmas community doo). Numbers were possibly a bit lower than previous years, due to sniffles and these times, but a good time was had by all.

Meet me in THE SONG in a couple of weeks! Auld Lang Syne is such a fun and informative show and I’m really excited about sharing it with you. The tickets are selling well, but there’s still room in all the venues. Suitable for all ages 8 upwards. Details below. Hope to see you there.

All the very best for the New Year!

Hi folks,

Well, it’s that time of the year and a wee look back on 2022 makes me realise we’ve been through and are going through seismic changes.

I hope to see you in twenty three, when we’ll still most likely be at sea. But bobbing along, singing a song, is where you’ll find me. 

I hope to see you on some stage in January for the show Auld Lang Syne or the new run of online fiddle sessions. More info below.

Happy Xmas and all the very best for the New Year!

Announcing my Auld Lang Syne January tour!

Hi folks,

To celebrate Robert Burns birthday on Jan 25th, I’ll be playing six Auld Lang Syne shows in late January – in Tobermory, Aberdeen, Perth, Hawick and Edinburgh!

I’ve a good number of stories associated with this song. And with the help of my director and co-creator Kath Burlinson we’ve made a cracking wee show that reveals the many layers that make this ageless song stay in our hearts and minds. Many audience members have told me they thought they knew the song until they came to the show…

“…virtuosic Mairi Campbell transcends the role of performer… voice is like no other… incredible storyteller…” Edinburgh Guide *****

I hope to see you on some stage in January! Ticket details below.
