What’s on in September 2022

This year’s festival is our most ambitious to date and we couldn’t be more excited to introduce our programme.

The wonderful American pianist Jeremy Denk returns with another astonishing collection of performances.

Our friends Quatuor Mosaïques bring their incomparable Viennese insight to the music of Schubert and Haydn.

What the press say

‘Lammermuir is longer, more intimate and better than ever … If any organisation in Scotland’s arts can be said to have built back better from the pandemic, it’s East Lothian’s Lammermuir Festival . . it’s roaring back to in-person life … it shows laudable ambition and sets a standard many arts organisations could learn from.’

The Times ***** (2021)

‘There’s a quiet class about the whole thing that generates a special kind of listening: for all the dark arts of conjuring festival ambience, Lammermuir tends to simply programme right and let the music do the talking’

The Guardian ****

‘It is part of the festival’s appeal that it takes audiences to locations that are beautiful in and of themselves, and it exposes them to great music that seems to fit each place like a glove.’

Seen and Heard International (2021)

‘A remarkable experience – The Lammermuir Festival, founded only in 2010, is going from strength to strength under artistic directors Hugh Macdonald and James Waters.’

Opera Magazine

‘A wide range of inventive music-making taking place with some of Scotland’s most stunning scenery as its backdrop.’

BBC Music Magazine

‘This was an intimate performance that invited the audience in. It’s easy to think about live music as the experience of being performed to; this was a reminder that some of the best performances are like overhearing a private conversation among friends.’
