Mairi's adventures with Scotland's most famous song.
Delivered with her trademark wit and unparalleled musical ability, this funny and heartfelt show resonates with universal truths. As we learn about the song and its history, we journey with Mairi as she negotiates the politics of childhood friendships; the challenges of romantic relationships and the highs and lows of success and failure.
Blending storytelling, animation and movement with music composed by David Gray and Mairi Campbell this five-star show brings Scotland's most famous song to life.
Co-devised and directed by Kath Burlinson.
