Glasgow based folksinger, songwriter, ukulele player and guitarist Claire Hastings has made a name for herself on the folk scene since winning BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year in 2015.

7th annual music festival

The 7th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will now take place over the 9th-11th July 2021 following the Trust's decision to re-schedule this year's event due to Covid-19. We are in negotiation with the artists booked for this year and hope to secure them all for 2021, plus a few extra surprises, so we'll be back with another packed programme of traditional music and dance next year. We hope you'll join us.
