Retreats and workshops

Throughout the year Mairi runs various workshops, which are designed to invigorate and awaken participants’ artistry.

Mairi has an incredible ability to facilitate, support and encourage. Workshop participants get the chance to  expand and explore their own voices, playing and creativity, and have fun with others.

No particular level of musicality is required – willingness is the only requirement.

Lismore retreats

Mairi is an outstanding facilitator who brings her own unique approach to music teaching in her retreats.

Mairi’s music retreats are either run as fiddle or voice retreats, or occasionally both.

Her deep respect for Scottish traditional music sits alongside a gentle encouragement to find new pathways and sounds.

Retreats on the isle of Lismore are held at Carnie cottage, a traditional Highland cottage with a studio out the back.
