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 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 supported the first Cumnock Tryst - 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 second Cumnock Tryst will take place from 1st - 4th October 2015, and more information will be available soon.
