Mairi began her professional singing career studying at RSAMD Glasgow with David Kelly (Head of Singing Department and the Opera School). After being awarded the John Leishman Scholarship, Mairi then went on to study with Noelle Barker OBE at the Guildhall in London.

Mairi didn’t want a purely classical singing career and so after leaving college sang in everything from clubs to pantomime and summer season until working in London’s West End and then toured the UK as Maria in West Side Story.

Mairi has sung in productions all over Britain.  She has toured with theatre companies and as a soloist, has sung everything from Scots Song, the classical concert repertoire and opera, musical theatre and contemporary songs. She also wrote and performed her own work, The Pursuit of Joy, a 1970s retrospective.  She recorded the album, Songs From Elsewhere with Maartin Allcock and since then has performed throughout the Nordic regions, London the UK.

While continuing to perform as a singer, Mairi teaches singing on a one to one basis,  runs workshops,  The Mairi-O-Nettes  choir and regular concerts with students and professional musicians.
