After 6 fantastic Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festivals, the incredible amount of hard work that has gone in to delivering those events, finalists in the Tourism Champion category at the 2018 Dumfries & Galloway Life Awards, finalists in the Best Festival category at the National E Awards in 2019 and our Festival Director being shortlisted as a finalist in the Culture Champion category at the 2019 Dumfries & Galloway Life Awards, it has been a fantastic few years for the organisation and the festival.
Your support has been outstanding over the years and we hope you'll help us put Newton Stewart & Minnigaff on the map once again at the National MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards.
