Festival Marquee, Waulkmill House, Minnigaff
The Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music Festival began life as a garden party organised by my then partner, now wife, Rhona and I at our home in Minnigaff, Wigtownshire. Friends and family were invited to join us for food, drinks and to play music together - invariably into the wee small hours! As each year passed the party grew and, evenutally, a small marquee was even required to accommodate everyone.
Less than a month now until the 4th annual Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music Festival which, this year, is being held on the weekend of the 7th - 9th July 2017. Jarlath Henderson Band, Tim Edey, Emily Smith, Jamie McClennan, ATLAS, Fáilte, Charlie Stewart, Becky Hill...are you as excited as we are?
