Perthshire Amber 2014
This is the 10th year of our festival and promises once again to be full of wonderful concerts featuring the finest of Scotland's musical talent as well as some international guests. Our venues are as special as ever … ranging from the prestigious Perth Concert Hall to town halls and tiny village halls, from atmospheric castles to our historic Dunkeld Cathedral and even including an iron age Crannog on Loch Tay…25 venues in all in 2014!
The festival is always always evolving (remember it began as just a weekend of concerts!) and this year we're thrilled to have been chosen as one of the funded events for Homecoming Scotland 2014. We'll be bringing you some very special concerts and events to celebrate Homecoming Scotland 2014, the 10th anniversary of Perthshire Amber and Dougie's 40th year as a touring musician!!
Enjoy the website! All the Perthshire Amber team look forward to welcoming you to Perthshire in the autumn.
The Story So Far
"I've long dreamt of a 'festival-type' situation where I could really enjoy performing a wide body of my own work. After many years of accumulating quite a lot of songs and tunes it can be frustrating sometimes that concerts can only last a couple of hours!" (Dougie MacLean). Internationally acclaimed Singer-songwriter and Composer Dougie MacLean fulfilled his dream with the creation of The Perthshire Amber Festival, a festival that lights up the Autumn across some of Scotland's more beautiful countryside.
