A festival of music in and around Cumnock
For a few autumn days the East Ayrshire town of Cumnock becomes a meeting place for music. Founded by composer Sir James MacMillan, The Cumnock Tryst brings some of the world's greatest musicians into local venues, churches and halls, with the community at the heart of all of its activities.
Thank you to everyone who has supported The Cumnock Tryst in 2014 and 2015 - our participants and performers, our wonderful volunteers, our friends, patrons and supporters, and of course, our audiences who packed out venues and created such a special atmosphere throughout the whole festival.
The Cumnock Tryst 2016 will be launched on Wednesday 25th May. Scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up for our e-news.
