About Mairi Campbell and The Pendulum Band with Hannah Read

We are delighted to present this double headline bill from two of the most inventive figures working in contemporary traditional music.

MAIRI CAMPBELL
Multi-award winning Mairi Campbell is a pioneering figure in Scottish music. Her musical interests are wide ranging from playing Scottish dance music to pushing the boundaries of the tradition with her soundings and improvisations. As a solo performer she blends viola, voice and keyboard skills with a range of music that goes from traditional ballads to her unique soundings often with audience participation. Recently Mairi has built two solo music theatre shows ‘Mairi Campbell: Pulse’ (2016) and ‘Mairi Campbell: Auld Lang Syne’ (2018). She’s received wide critical acclaim for this new direction and aims to create her third solo show within a few years.

Mairi will be joined by: Su–a Lee: cello; Innes Watson: guitar; Nicky Haire: violin; Will Jaquet: drums; Luna Blue Vocal Trio.

HANNAH READ
Born and raised in Edinburgh and now residing in Brooklyn, New York, Hannah Read is a versatile multi-instrumentalist widely recognised on the International stage. She’s best known for her fiddle playing, songwriting and composing and was recently described as one of "the finest singers of the day" in the UK’s MOJO Magazine. Hannah leads her own band and is an in-demand collaborator on both sides of the Atlantic - including one part of the critically acclaimed British folk super-group ‘Songs of Separation’, winners of ‘Album of the Year’ at the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Hannah spent her youth playing fiddle and singing in the rich traditional music scenes of Edinburgh and on the Isle of Eigg. With musical training at The City of Edinburgh Music School, The American School of Modern Music in Paris and the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Hannah gathered the musical tools, vocabulary and experience that propelled her into the thriving Brooklyn music scene.

Hannah’s latest solo album ‘Way Out I’ll Wander’, was released in February 2018 on UK-based label Hudson Records. With comparisons to Sandy Denny, Joni Mitchell and Feist, Hannah seamlessly weaves in her influences from both sides of the Atlantic.
