Hair NV Hairdressing Salon - Gatehouse of Fleet

Huge thanks to Donna McWhir and everyone at Hair NV who we welcome as festival sponsors/partners this year. Hair NV Hairdressing Salon is Dumfries & Galloway's destination salon offering a range of professional services.

Newton Stewart & Minnigaff Traditional Music & Dance Festival is run on an entirely not-for-profit basis with volunteer support from a fantastic board of Trustees, dedicated and committed individuals in Nathon Jones, our Festival Director, and Paula Herries our Dancing Co-ordinator and of course the wonderful audiences, sponsors, funders and partners who continue to support the event.

Not only will your support have a direct economic impact in the region, you'll also be helping people, young and old, to learn, develop and celebrate their traditional music, dance, language, culture and heritage which is incredibly important but also lots of fun and, in some cases, can be career defining.

Find out how you can get involved by visiting the support page on the official website at www.tradmusic.com/get-involved.php.

Make sure you visit Hair NV's official website and Facebook.  Thanks again from everyone at the festival!

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.
