Biography

Michael Marra (17 February 1952 – 23 October 2012) was a singer-songwriter and musician from Dundee, Scotland. Known as the Bard of Dundee, Marra was a solo performer who toured the UK and performed in arts centres, theatres, folk clubs and village halls. While mainly known as a songwriter, he also worked extensively in theatre, radio and television. His songwriting was rooted in Scottish life and he found an audience within and beyond the folk music scene, which led to him work as a support musician for such performers as Van Morrison, The Proclaimers, Barbara Dickson and Deacon Blue. His song "Hermless" was jokingly suggested as a potential Scottish national anthem.
