Mairi Campbell: Auld Lang Syne

About Mairi Campbell: Auld Lang Syne

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.

★★★★★ '…voice is like no other…an incredible storyteller…' (Edinburgh Guide)

★★★★★ 'Campbell’s irresistible love-letter to the song and her life is melodic and tribal… rocks with the ages past & present, salves with cathartic balm.' (Edinburgh Reporter)

★★★★ 'beautiful mix of song, fiddle, intricate animation…' (The Wee Review)
