The increasingly in-demand Maxwell Quartet are old friends of the Lammermuir Festival and we are delighted to welcome them back to this Victorian gem of a church. They play two great quartets on either side of one of their own charming arrangements of Scottish folk tunes.

'… these four young Scots set the bar high … inventiveness, rhythmic energy and irreproachable intonation'

France Musique

'Brilliantly fresh, unexpected and exhilarating enlightening …and enthralling musical experience'

St Anne’s Episcopal Church, Dunbar

St Anne's, mother of the Virgin Mary, was one of the saints widely venerated in East Lothian in the middle ages and there was a mediaeval chapel dedicated to her near Holy Trinity Church in Haddington. The foundation stone of Dunbar’s charming little episcopal church was laid in 1888 and after the original architect Hew M Wardrop died it was completed in Gothic Revival style by the leading Scottish architect of the day, Sir Robert Rowand Anderson.
