About The Lammermuir Festival

The Lammermuir Festival was born of a conviction that historic architecture and beautiful landscape can be an ideal environment in which to experience great music and music-making.

The festival was established to bring the finest musicians together with local people and visitors in celebration of music in towns and villages across the county of East Lothian, nestling between the Lammermuir Hills and the sea. The area’s wealth of beautiful buildings continues to inspire our choice of music and artists.

We are proud to continue our close relationship with several of Scotland’s leading ensembles, but as well as inviting internationally renowned musicians, we also seek out the most exciting new talent from Scotland, the UK and abroad.

Music has the power to enhance, to refresh and sometimes to change peoples’ lives. Firm in that belief we offer the Lammermuir Festival as a gift to the people of East Lothian and all those who come to discover the magic of this beautiful place.

“Beautiful places these certainly are, but to call the music of the festival simply beautiful would be missing something: it was lot more besides.”
The Daily Telegraph

“East Lothian is one of Scotland’s best kept secrets boasting a wealth of great country houses, ancient churches and idyllic rural towns and villages & a plentiful supply of beautiful places for the festival’s performances.

The music is carefully matched to each venue’s character and acoustic and hearing music at the Lammermuir Festival is an extra-special experience.”
