Since then, Mairi has become a well established singer and is often heard on television and radio.
Prior to Mairi’s first album Causeway, which was released in 1989, she recorded and performed with Runrig. Mairi was becoming a much sought-after artist and was approached by the Gaelic dance group Mouth Music. She toured the USA and Canada and recorded the EP Blue Door Green Sea before returning to a solo career.
Mairi’s publishing company Monamore Music was named after the Monamore burn which flows close to where she lives in Lamlash on the Isle of Arran.
