Kenna Campbell

Kenna Campbell

Kenna Campbell is recognised as one of the principal tradition bearers of contemporary Gaelic Scotland. Born in Roag, near Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, and now living in Glasgow, she belongs to a family of singers and pipers – the Campbells of Greepe – and is the mother of Cliar singer, Mary Ann Kennedy. Her greatest passion is for the òran mòr or the “big song” in classical Gaelic tradition, and the family as a whole share a special talent in the singing of mouth music or puirt a beul.

Her love of song is matched by that of her desire to pass on this knowledge and skill to a new generation of singers, and her role as prinicipal tutor in Gaelic Song at the RSAMD’s Scottish Music degree is characterised by a contemporary approach matched with a respect for the roots of tradition.
