D&G Life Awards Finalists!

Chairperson Billy and Festival Director Nathon are off to the D&G Life Awards this evening (9th Nov) to represent Trad Music Trust and the Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival which has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Tourism Champion category.

We are delighted to have been shortlisted this year and are very much looking forward to our evening at Easterbrook Hall in Dumfries and being guests of the fantastic D&G Life Magazine. Fingers crossed we scoop an award for the festival but, whatever happens, we're chuffed to bits to get to the finals and to have the event recognised in such a way.  Thanks to everyone who voted. 

We'd like to wish all the nominees the very best of luck tonight, in all categories, but particulary events, businesses, organisations and individuals in Wigtownshire and over in the West.

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.
