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.

A Brilliant Festival! News 7/11/2013

Tickets! Tickets! Tickets! 2/6/2014

For all those who have ordered tickets online or by post since they went on sale on May 13th at 4pm and want them to be posted out we apologise for the delay. We have been so busy since that date answering ticket calls, processing orders and organising concerts and Live Streams that we have not posted out a single ticket as yet!

Now that Dougie's 40th anniversary Tour has begun (with the wonderful performance of his Perthshire Cantata in Perth Concert Hall last night) we hope to have time to get the first batch in the post over the next couple of days....so please be patient as we catch up with what has been an unprecedented demand in the first couple of weeks of festival tickets being on sale.

We are thrilled with the response to this year's progamme of concerts. It's a great line-up! You can see what tickets are available by viewing the 2014 PROGRAMME.
