Superb young dancer Katy McClymont performing for this year's online festival

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.

Wishing us all a happier New Year x

It has been a tough year for the arts but it's nothing compared to those suffering from, or affected by, this terrible illness and our hearts go out, this Hogmanay, to those people and to those that work tirelessly to protect us, and provide for us. We are all dearly hoping for a happier New 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.
