Delighted that outstanding guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, performer and tutor Ron Jappy will be facilitating a guitar workshop this year.

A graduate of the Royal Conservatoire (formally the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama), Ron Jappy has always had a passion for performing and teaching music. From a young age, he made the best of the opportunities given to him, and has been influenced by a broad range of fantastic musicians and teachers. During his time spent in Glasgow, Ron has had a number of experiences presented to him through the rich and vibrant music scene, and is subsequently sought after as an accomplished guitarist, fiddler and pianist.

Ron has years of experience in tutoring individuals and groups through a number of different organisations. He is currently a guitar tutor for the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland through their Musicworks programme, teaching Scottish Traditional Music to children of all ages, as well as being involved with the Youth Music Initiative programme in Edinburgh.

He is an associate musician for Drake Music Scotland allowing him to do project work throughout the country, and he has also done a number of teaching workshops through Live Music Now Scotland. Previously the resident fiddle tutor at the North Ayrshire Fiddle Workshop, teaching children’s and adult classes Ron has also taught guitar, fiddle and group work for Fèisean nan Gàidheal.

“My method, whilst firm, is always relaxed, fun and creative. I strive to bring out the best in my students; musically, stylistically and technically. My aim is to nurture and encourage their natural creativity.”

6th annual music festival

The 6th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will take place over 12th-14th July 2019 and, after another outstanding programme of events in 2018 which saw us hosting Scottish Highland Dancing competitions and, as ever, some of the biggest names in traditional music, it looks set to be another packed programme and is really living up to it's reputation as one of the best rural arts festivals in Dumfries & Galloway.
