The 8th Perthshire Amber Festival was a true triumph! A post-festival Letter from Jenny (Jennifer MacLean - Festival Director)
"Since tickets first went on sale back in April we watched as one concert after another, in towns and villages all over Perthshire sold out. We're really pleased to announce that, in a year that has seen many festivals and events in crisis and with financial doom and gloom all around, we have managed to achieve more than a 10% increase in our attendance figures and have doubled the number of 'festival-goers' since we became a 10-day festival in 2007. We are proud that our festival, completely organised by our family along with a dedicated and talented team from many different parts of Scotland and the world, has grown a reputation for being welcoming and friendly, encouraging of aspiring musicians and presenting a high quality and appealing programme. There were so many layers of Perthshire Amber in 2012 and so many 'experiences' and friends (musical and otherwise) that I'd like to hi-light.
