The Coffee Concerts are back!

One of the world’s leading ensembles, the Gould Piano Trio has pursued a remarkable international career for more than 20 years. Each of their morning concerts includes one of Haydn’s endlessly imaginative, charming and sparkling piano trios.

The Goulds also offer great trios by a wide variety of composers and include the Scottish premiere of a work specially composed for them by one of the most talked-about young British composers, Mark Simpson. With cakes from master baker Falko Burkert, coffee and a daily festival news briefing from directors Hugh Macdonald and James Waters, these concerts are a perfect way to start your Lammermuir Festival day.

'The only comparison that comes to mind is the old Beaux Arts Trio; the combination of jeweller-like precision and a musical fire that ignites from the first bar.'

Washington Post

'We really enjoyed the coffee concerts - beautiful playing and simple but informative introductions - cake and meeting up with old (and new) friends was a bonus.'

The Town House, Haddington

The Town House in Haddington was designed by William Adam in 1748, though little of his original work remains. A court room and assembly room were added in 1788 over the colonnade of Haddington Market.

The bell in the clock tower rings at 7am and then again at 10pm, suggesting waking and bed time and has done so to mark curfew since 1532.
