The MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards are open for nominations and if you've enjoyed and/or benefitted from the Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival we'd really appreciate your support with a nomination for Community Project of the Year and/or Event of the Year.
The MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards highlight Scotland's wonderful traditional music in a high profile awards ceremony that, this year, will take place at The Lagoon Centre, Paisley, on Saturday 2nd December.
You have until Friday 13th October to cast your vote and we'd really appreciate it if you would consider nominating Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival in either the Community Project of the Year, sponsored by Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust, or Event of the Year, sponsored by VisitScotland, categories or you could of course nominate the festival for both!
The Community Project of the Year award is for the traditional music project that best serves your community and the Event of the Year award is to recognise the traditional music event/festival in 2017 which was best organised, most welcoming, had the best or most discerning audiences.
Also in the list of categories is the Scots Trad Album of the Year 2017 which is determined by a panel of industry experts and our very own Aaron Jones with his band Old Blind Dogs and their latest release “Room with a View” have been nominated in the top 20 longlist for this award so please do get nominating and let's make it a year to remember for Dumfries & Galloway!
