Merrick Sponsors Newton Stewart Traditional Music Festival 2019

6th Newton Stewart Traditional Music Festival


Merrick was delighted to continue its association with the Newton Stewart Traditional and Acoustic Music Festival as a co-sponsor:

The festival took place on Friday 10th July – Sunday 12th July 2019 in Newton Stewart, Galloway, Scotland and was a celebration of Scottish and other traditional folk music.

The wide-ranging programme featured performances from leading musicians (including Duncan Chisolm, Steph Geremia, Kitty Macfarlane, Dougie MacLean, Rachel Hair, Benedict Morris, Rose Byers, and Ron Jappy) song sessions, tune sessions and interactive workshops to suit all ages and musical abilities.

Nathon Jones, Festival Director commented “ This was, quite simply, the best weekend of live music & dance that we’ve ever experienced at the festival. From a packed opening night, the undeniable passion and emotion at the McMillan Hall and Dougie MacLean’s wonderful finale, it was unforgettable! We are delighted that Merrick Real Estate is continuing its association with this wonderful event.

Mark Norris, Managing Director of Merrick said “ It was great to continue our sponsorship of this wonderful event which displayed such fantastic talent in a wonderful setting, and demonstrated the vibrancy of the traditional music scene in Galloway and Scotland.”
