Festival Marquee, Waulkmill House, Minnigaff
The Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music Festival began life as a garden party organised by my then partner, now wife, Rhona and I at our home in Minnigaff, Wigtownshire. Friends and family were invited to join us for food, drinks and to play music together - invariably into the wee small hours! As each year passed the party grew and, evenutally, a small marquee was even required to accommodate everyone.
6 concerts, 7 workshops, sessions all over the place all weekend, beautiful sunshine, fabulous musicians...2017 was our best year yet with lots of new faces and, pleasingly, musicians as well as our regular visitors who we love to see back every year. We already have some announcements for 2018 which we'll be making in due course plus there'll be lots of new additions to the website over the coming months so please stay tuned for all the latest.
