A couple of recent reviews of Michael's performance at Strathclyde Suite as part of 2011 Celtic Connections -
Michael Maclennan for STV -
"Hmm, it’s a tough one (as well as a tongue-twister): telling a tale about a masterful tale-teller. But just as Michael Marra has amassed a series of superb songs based around his friends, fellow musicians and fictional characters so rich they may as well have existed in real life, so it’s only right that his rather wonderful show last night at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall’s Strathclyde Suite is recorded in some sort of detail for posterity."

"HAVE you noticed I'm not much of a purist?" says Michael Marra, two songs into a cracker of a concert. The Bard of Dundee has been playing fast and loose with musical genres for longer than most of us care to remember, and he was on fighting form for his Celtic Connections outing"
