Auld Lang Syne
Mairi's Adventures with Scotland's Most Famous Song
In 2008, Mairi Campbell’s rendition of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ reached a global audience when her rendition was used in the pivotal New Year’s Eve scene in the ‘Sex and The City’ movie.
Delivered with her trademark wit and unparalleled musical ability, this funny and heartfelt show resonates with wider universal truths. Audiences will learn more about the song and its history; recognise negotiating the politics of childhood friendships; the challenges of romantic relationships and the highs and lows of success and failure.
Blending storytelling, animation and movement with new music composed with David Gray and Mairi Campbell this five-star show brings Scotland’s most famous song to life.
Presented by Greengold Projects and co-devised and directed by Kath Burlinson of the the Authentic Artist Collective, Mairi Campbell: Auld Lang Syne was part of the Made in Scotland showcase 2018.
