Mairi Campbell: Pulse
- $20 for strathspey members
- all tickets are an additional $5 day of show
Please join us as we welcome Scotland’s own Mairi Campbell as she presents Mairi Campbell: Pulse, her one-woman music theatre show, co-devised and directed by Kath Burlinson.
Blending viola, voice, movement, animation and storytelling, Pulse weaves together Campbell’s coming-of-age tale, where profound encounters with music and love change the course of her life, with the true story of how she found her musical ‘pulse’. After frustrating and funny detours to music college and Mexican orchestras, Campbell makes a visit to Cape Breton which sends her home with a spring in her step. Delivered with trademark wit, gentle charm and unparalleled musical ability, Pulse, is a show that resonates with universal truths.
With original music by Mairi Campbell and Dave Gray.
