**TICKETS NEWS!! (Thursday 23rd May 2019) ...Because of the 'over-booking' and the need for 're-allocation' of some who booked online last Tuesday we have added an extra 'duplicate' concert at Murthly Castle Chapel on Friday 1st November. (Tea and cake in the billiard room at 11am and concert in the chapel at midday!) There are 38 seats available so we thought it would be fairest to make 20 of these available online and 18 available by phone (01350 724261). These tickets are NOT available to those who have tickets booked for the 2pm concert... I have a list ... so please don't try!  Tickets on sale by phone from 8pm (UK time) tonight. I will be ready to take your calls. Please don't phone before 8pm. 

The dates for our next festival will be Friday 1st November - Sunday 3rd November 2019.

This will be a welcome return of our festival after the successful 2018 '3-day musical feast' ... and promises once again to be full of wonderful musicians performing to the most appreciative audiences ever...gathered in Perthshire in the heart of Scotland from all over the world!  Our venues will be as special as ever … ranging from the prestigious Perth Concert Hall to the atmospheric church or castle venues, from the Garden Room at Dunkeld House on the banks of the Tay to the various historic Dunkeld pubs where music sessions will again abound! 

Once again we'll have lots of wonderful new artists as well as festival favourites who have become part of our 'team', with a mixture of evening concerts, Amber Afternoon concerts, Cabaret Amber, Open Mic... and lots of music sessions in pubs!

Enjoy this website which is full of info about past festivals and you'll increasingly find out what you can enjoy in 2019.  The website is always a 'work in progress' and information, events and musicians will be added throughout the keep coming back for updates. All the Perthshire Amber team look forward to welcoming you back to Perthshire in the autumn. 

The Programme, Artists and Venues for our 2019 festival are now available. Tickets for 2019 will be on sale from 4pm (UK time) on Tuesday 14th May 2019.

See you all next autumn!!
