The Mind Sweepers are a four-piece from Dumfries, comprising Paul Winter (vocals, lyrics, acoustic guitar), John McInally (lead guitar, backing vocals), Mark Jardine (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Bryn Thorburn (drums, percussion).

They were formed in 2015, have gigged plenty, and released an album entitled ‘States of Mind’ in early 2018. Influences are varied, as are the songs, which range from psyche-rock, to contemporary folk.

Support will be from superb local singer/songwriter Huey Dowling, who also owns and manages Unit 7 Studio at Bladnoch and the fantastic Emma and The Poets.

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.
