Alisa Mair

Ailsa Mair {sometimes known as The Fairytale Cellist} weaves elemental tapestries from her strings, voice and loop pedal, infused with wild nature, love & magic. She sings and plays at the same time (cello / viola da gamba or bass viol), sharing original songs and live improvisations from the heart, in Welsh, English and made up languages.Collaborating extensively with many well known artists - musicians, storytellers, dancers, aerialists and illustrators - in performance and in session, she has also worked extensively in theatre, including with the Royal Shakespeare Company. As a storyteller having just performed hers and Deb Winter's newly commissioned show Secrets & Silences at Beyond the Border International Storytelling Festival, she co-won the Gwobr Esyllt Award from Welsh Women's Storytelling collective Chwedl.
