A huge thank you to those of you who have donated so far to support this year's online version of Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival. If you're one of the 448 people who have viewed the online concert this year, and you haven't yet donated, here's how you do it.

We've extended the deadline for fundraising for this campaign on the JustGiving website to give those who have watched the film but have yet to donate a bit more time to get that completed or, if you haven't yet seen this year's online version of the festival, simply follow the instructions below and you'll enjoy performances from Karen-Marie Keenan, students from the Paula Herries School of Dance, Ali Levack, Cameron Nixon, Sarah Markey Band, Damien O'Kane & Ron Block Band, Grainne Brady & Ulaid.

Simply click the 'Donate at JustGiving' button below to make a donation of your choice and help support the musicians, dancers and behind the scenes staff and volunteers who worked so hard to bring you this online version of the festival during lockdown.  You'll also be supporting nest year's festival and the ongoing work of the Trad Music Trust charity.

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.
