“VISIONARY MUSICIANSHIP… DISTINCTIVE VIRTUOSITY”
The Herald ★★★★
“Bare and unabashed honesty…by the end of ‘Pulse’ you’ll feel transformed.”
Three Weeks ★★★★★
Musician Mairi Campbell’s critically-acclaimed theatre show Mairi Campbell: Pulse is back on tour in Scotland after a successful run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Mairi sings, plays viola and step dances in her one-woman show, which has been highly praised by audiences and critics alike and championed by Made in Scotland, a showcase of world class Scottish music and theatre.
Taking Pulse back on the road in October, Mairi is to play venues in Paisley, Stirling, Aberdeen and Cromarty. Earlier in the year, she had played everywhere from Luing to Banchory before taking a break for the Fringe.
“I’m touched to meet so many folk who have already come to see the show,” said Mairi. “It really seems to resonate with people.”
She added: “I can’t wait to get back on the road again. It’s good to get a feel for the pulse of each area, meet people in different communities, hear their stories and share mine. I hope people will make it out to see the show.”
Co-devised and directed by Kath Burlinson, Pulse is Mairi’s story of her musical homecoming. Upon rejecting her classical training, Mairi goes on a personal and musical journey to discover where she really belongs.
