Another year, another name change :) and Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival was ready to celebrate it's 5th anniversary at what was shaping up to be one of the most ambitious events yet. A new programme of official Scottish Highland dancing competitions, running all day on the Saturday, another outstanding musical line-up including the legendary Andy Irvine himself and continued support and backing from D&G Council's Major Events Strategic Fund and The Holywood Trust.
