Mairi Campbell presents Mairi Campbell: Pulse, her one-woman music theatre 
show, co-devised and directed by Kath Burlinson of the Authentic Artist Collective. 

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 as featured in the album Pulse.

The show is touching, funny and potent. A significant development in 
Mairi’s artistry, it is performed with power, commitment and energy.

Pulse was showcased in Edinburgh in June 2015 and at Celtic 
Connections in January 2016. In August 2016, the show ran for a full 
month at the Fringe to great critical and audience feedback. Most 
recently, Mairi has toured the show around Scotland and has taken it to 
London’s Vault Festival.

“Bare and unabashed honesty… by the end of ‘Pulse’ you’ll feel transformed”
Three Weeks

“A consummate musician, Mairi Campbell in her one-woman show Pulse reveals her formidable acting
 and storytelling talents as she explores the very essence of what it is
 to be a musician in this thought-provoking and moving journey”

Susan Nickalls, music critic

“A feast for the mind, as 
well as the eyes and ears. Challenging and inspiring. Made me want to 
dance (and I almost never dance!) and take up the fiddle again”
Richard Medrington, Puppet State Theatre Company

“Subtle and evocative…a story with local and global resonance”
All Edinburgh Theatre.com

“a mesmerising performer with
 such a gift for accents and physical comedy that it’s easy to forget 
her main job is folk musician”
Andrew Eaton-Lewis, the Scotsman

“There is no doubting Summerhall has a gem in Mairi Campbell’s show”
