Philip Higham Cello
Kim Vaughan Cello

Seton is one of East Lothian’s architectural treasures – a beautiful building approached through a small wood. It is one of Scotland’s finest surviving late mediaeval collegiate churches. We’re delighted to be able to introduce it to the festival for the first time – a unique opportunity to hear
great music in this magnificent setting.

“Philip Higham is undoubtedly one of the most impressive young British cellists I have heard in a decade… he has all the qualities of a world-class artist.”
