"This mostly Gaelic album from South Uist's Mairi MacInnes is a gentle gem... MacInnes has a pure, clean voice and wisely chooses arrangements to highlight it... Orra Bhonna Bhonnagan and Puirt a Beul give this album bounce as well as grace...
"Orosay is beautifully put together - both downright classy and truly delightful. An Aisling and the title track are particularly noteworthy..."
A previous Mod gold medallist, Mairi has travelled and sang throughout North America and Europe, in particular Cape Breton and Spain. In Scotland she is hugely popular and her reputation as a fine Gaelic singer has spread to England and Wales, where she has performed many times.
She is accomplished in traditional style singing as well as in the more modern expression which appeals to the younger generation. Mairi is also well known for her Gaelic childrens’ television programmes where she entertains youngsters with song and rhyme, many of them her own work - an album of Gaelic childrens’ songs by Mairi is due to be released by Greentrax later in 2001. She was also included on the unique recording project Gaelic Women which was later presented as a feature concert at Celtic Connections.
