Mairi MacInnes

Scotland

Mairi was born in Baghasdail A Tuath, a small township on the beautiful island of South Uist in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. She spoke Gaelic in the home and it was not until Mairi went to school that she learned English. She enjoyed singing from an early age in Gaelic and in 1982 became one of the youngest winners of the prestigious Gold Medal at the National Mod in Skye, achieved at her first attempt. The following year Mairi won the Pan Celtic Festival in Killarney, Ireland.
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.
