Bruce McKenzie

We are delighted to announce that the incredible Kirkcudbright musician Bruce McKenzie will be opening for Ivan Drever on the 20th of April 2024 at 7pm! Don't miss a chance to see two incredible performers live at The Vault Arts Centre! Tickets available now!

Supporting Ivan will be Kirkcudbright singer-songwriter Bruce McKenzie. For more than a decade on radio and more than two decades on stage, he’s played other people’s songs; but now he’s performing some of his own. With influences from both sides of the Atlantic, his small town stories are steeped in coastal life. You don't want to miss out seeing both these incredible performers sharing their original work live! Tickets on sale now!

Highland dancing competition unable to go ahead this year

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the postponement of this year's Highland dancing competition at Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival. Continued funding cuts have meant some very difficult decisions have had to be made, however we do hope to bring this back in 2025.
