Trad Music Trust


In August 2018, Newton Stewart Traditional Music Festival Association's application to become a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation, under the new name Trad Music Trust, was approved by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR). The aim of the organisation is to encourage, develop, support and promote traditional music, dance and language learning and performance in Wigtownshire, Dumfries & Galloway.

4.1. the advancement of education in traditional music, dance and language by encouraging, supporting, delivering, developing and promoting traditional music, dance and language learning and education through a range of workshops, talks, training days and other educational events and opportunities;

4.2. the provision of recreational facilities, or the organisation of recreational activities, with the object of improving the conditions of life for the persons for whom the facilities or activities are primarily intended;

4.3. the advancement of the arts, heritage and culture of Scotland and other Celtic nations

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.
