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.

Who Are We?


Trad Music Trust is almost entirely voluntary run - there are no paid members of staff - and is managed by a Board of Trustees, Project Co-ordinator, Festival Director and Dance Co-ordinator all of whom, along with volunteers from the local community, work incredibly hard to deliver fantastic projects in the region.
