Many feel that music sessions are the ‘life-blood’ of a good music festival and we’ve always found that music and song can erupt anywhere during Perthshire Amber…whether it be on one of the shuttle bus trips, out on a walk, in a pub somewhere or at Amber Central.
We are fortunate in Dunkeld and Birnam to have a fine array of welcoming pubs! Each day a different one will play ‘host’ to the great music and craic as part of our ‘Amber Acoustic Sessions’. The Taybank, Atholl Arms Hotel, Royal Dunkeld Hotel and The Perth Arms are all host venues as ‘Pub of the Day’.
Over the course of the four days you can expect a host of musicians appearing at these sessions, from festival artists to visiting players and festival goers themselves…and no doubt even Dougie himself will be seen joining in.
As with all music sessions there is a spontaneous nature to these events so you never quite know who will turn up. Everyone is welcome so bring your instruments or voice and join in, or just sit back and enjoy the great music.
