Mairi Macinnes
"One of Gaeldom's most prestigious artistes..."
- The Scots Magazine

"With her first solo album [Orosay] in six years Mairi MacInnes returns as a major force in Gaelic singing..."
- Dirty Linen

"A very classy crossover release, which is likely to appeal to as much to fans of the original Capercaillie as much as to those more interested in the pure expression of Gaelic tradition..."
- David Kidman, Rock 'n' Reel

Mairi was born on 15th August 1964 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. In fact, no Gaelic music programme would be complete without Mairi MacInnes.

Prior to Mairi's first album Causeway, which was released in 1989, she recorded and performed with Runrig. Mairi was now becoming a much sought after artiste 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 MacInnes is the singer of William Jackson's new song for Scotland, Land of Light, which won The Glasgow Herald's New Song for the Millennium competition. Land of Light was selected as a winner out of 249 entries from as far afield as the Faroe Islands, New Zealand and the USA, from New York to Texas.
