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!)
2018 sees the 5th anniversary of Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival and we're pulling out all the stops to deliver another outstanding event in Wigtownshire. This year sees us host officially registered Scottish Highland Dancing competitions and, as ever, some of the biggest names in traditional music who will be performing over the 3 days. We have the bubbly on ice and can't wait to see you all again in Galloway. The tunes last year were just mighty!
