Raised in the west highland village of Morar and now based near Edinburgh, Scottish singer/songwriter Mairi Orr has been a regular in the Edinburgh and Lothians bluegrass and folk scene since 2004. Her melodic style and acoustic set-up draws from American roots music and Scottish traditional music, offering original songs and other interpretations which nod towards current Americana and contemporary Scottish Folk.
Mairi performs regularly around Scotland at folk clubs, festivals, events and sessions. In December 2011, she released a debut solo EP of five original songs, The Gathering Crows, to favourable reviews. She is equally comfortable to perform live as a solo artist, as a 2-piece or 4/5 piece set-up with The Borrowed Band, a musical collective of accomplished musicians.
