Baillie Gifford & Co. Limited

We are delighted to announce a brand new partnership between Trad Music Trust and the wonderful Baillie Gifford who have come on board as official sponsors in 2019, supporting Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival and the work of Trad Music Trust.

Baillie Gifford is an investment management firm, founded in Edinburgh in 1908, which is unique in the UK in being a large-scale investment business that has remained an independent private partnership. This ownership structure has allowed them to keep their efforts focused entirely on their clients and their investments.

We would like to offer our sincere thanks to Samantha Pattman and everyone at Baillie Gifford & Company Limited for their outstanding support this year.

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.
