Everyone at Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival would like to wish you all a very happy St. Andrews Day.
Did you know...St. Andrew is, as well as patron saint of Scotland, also the patron saint of Russia, Italy’s Amalfi, Greece and Barbados?
...that the white cross on the Scottish flag, the Saltire, is a representation of the X-shaped cross upon which St. Andrew was crucified, in Greece, on 30th November 60AD?
('tis a wonderful thing Wikipedia!)
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.
