Festival History


Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music Festival was founded by my wife Rhona and I in 2014. After another of our regular garden and music parties at our home in Minnigaff in the summer of 2013, and our ongoing frustration with arts programming and delivery in Wigtownshire, we took the decision to expand our event to a festival format and move it into town so that more people could experience and benefit from it; to learn, participate in and enjoy traditional music in Wigtownshire.
