What is Cumnock culture? Poet Rab Wilson, goalkeeper Derek Stillie and I meet with one of the country’s best broadcasters James Naughtie to explore what makes this place tick.
— James MacMillan

Join us for an early evening panel discussion in The Dumfries Arms to kick off Friday night at the Festival. The Cumnock Tryst Artistic Director James MacMillan, BBC presenter and journalist James Naughtie, local poet Rab Wilson and former Scottish footballer, and now Cumnock Tryst Board Member, Derek Stillie will chew the fat in what promises to be a fascinating and very entertaining session. Members of the audience will be able to pose their burning cultural (or other) questions too.
