Welcome 2020

Beautiful Music, Beautiful Places

Lammermuir Festival 2020

Well here we are! Welcome to the Lammermuir Festival Autumn Special.

All through the last few months we have been determined to present some live performances in September for you our audience. Thanks to the wonderful support of our donors and Friends we are absolutely delighted to be able to offer 12 streamed performances including 4 in partnership with BBC Radio 3.

The programme, which will be broadcast from Haddington’s beautiful Holy Trinity Church, has a typical Lammermuir blend of old friends and fresh new faces. Artists in residence Sean Shibe, Philip Higham and Roman Rabinovich return as do the Navarra String Quartet, Joshua Ellicott, and Tom Poster with festival debuts for brilliant violinist Chloë Hanslip and virtuoso trumpeter Matilda Lloyd. And we present visits by the Dunedin Consort, members of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra as well as a performance from Scottish Opera of Janacek’s Diary of One who Disappeared, live from Glasgow with tenor of the moment Nicky Spence.

We really hope that you will come with us on this year’s unconventional and rather special journey with some truly fabulous performers.
