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.

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.
