Since 2000 Music in Lanark has been bringing exceptional talent to the people of Clydesdale. From September through to March of the following year we present concerts showcasing a wide range of musical styles, from classical chamber music, opera and jazz to traditional Scottish. We also provide a regular platform for young musicians to perform at the beginning of each concert, thus enabling talent to flourish. Our base is The Institute at New Lanark, a historic building in the World Heritage Site village. Concerts are also held at other venues appropriate to the music, in and around Lanark.

Live Music is Coming Back to Lanark!

It’s been a long time since I’ve had anything positive to report regarding Music in Lanark but finally it looks like things might be starting to happen again!

We held our AGM back in June – for the second year in succession via Zoom rather than all in the same room. I am pleased to say that thanks to several wonderful folks stepping forward into the breach we now have a brand new Treasurer and Secretary and two new Committee members so the future of Music in Lanark looks secure.

We have also been fortunate enough to receive some funding from Chamber Music Scotland and I am pleased to be able to announce the following concert:

Saturday 28th August 2021

Hingin' by a Threed - Music in Lanark

Formed a number of years ago by like minded musicians just wanting to get together to make good music and have fun, Hingin’ by a Threed has been in its present format since August 2016. The band enjoys playing music from Scotland, Ireland and America including jigs, reels and slow airs. They have recently introduced some Bluegrass numbers into their repertoire, along with some haunting movie themes, making an eclectic mix of music. Based in North Ayrshire in Scotland, the Threeds regularly play in local pubs, restaurants and folk clubs. They also toured venues in Ireland in 2019. The normal line-up includes fiddle, guitar, mandolin, 4 and 5-string banjo and bouzouki.

This concert will be limited to a socially-distanced audience of just 40 people and will also be filmed and recorded for post concert streaming on the internet in order to bring the music to everyone who was not lucky enough to be able to get a ticket.

Tickets will be on sale from 1st August 2021 from:


Tickets must be purchased in advance and will not be available on the door

And looking ahead to the autumn and into next year – we’re working hard to plan our 2021-22 Music in Lanark concert series and hope to be able to share full details with you very soon.

Watch this space for further updates on the new season and here’s hoping to see you on Saturday 28th August 2021 for our first live music in over a year!

Until then, stay safe.

WIth very best wishes.
