Festival Update 2021

With lockdown easing paused for a further 3 weeks, which runs into this year's dates, Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will, instead, focus on what has made the event so popular; the fantastic tune and song sessions which take place at venues throughout the towns.

7th annual music festival

This year's Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival will take place over the 9th-11th July 2021 however, in response to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, it has been agreed that a much reduced programme be offered with a focus, this year, on the tune and song sessions which will be taking place in venues throughout the towns. We also hope to run a free outdoor concert however this will be dependent on the Scottish government advice and guidance at that time.
