Opening night of the opening festival; 2014 saw our festival journey begin. Nyaay!
"One of the best nights of music I've ever heard at the McMillan Hall."
World class musicians performing and teaching in Galloway. Rachel Newton went on to win the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Musician in 2017.
Local duo The Mermaids were in fine form to open the Friday night concert in 2016.
We are very proud to have welcomed world famous and award winning traditional music artists to the festival bringing high-quality arts programming and performances to new audiences, both young and old, in Wigtownshire.
