About Perthshire Amber (The Dougie MacLean Festival) 2012

The Perthshire Amber Festival, which last year drew over 7,000 people to Perthshire from 22 different countries has been described as “a jewel of a festival” (Scotsman). This 10-day festival has in 7 years established itself as one of Scotlandʼs leading musical and cultural events. Dougie MacLean, “Scotland's pre-eminent singer-songwriter and a national musical treasure” (Performing Songwriter USA) and his team have developed a unique festival which shares with visitors from Scotland and abroad his native and beautiful scenery, as well as his music and musical friends. Though its base for free music is in the ancient town of Dunkeld, the 18 afternoon and evening concerts are staged in a variety of wonderful venues all over the region from the Iron Age crannog on Loch Tay to village and town halls, the prestigious Perth Concert Hall, historic castles and the atmospheric Dunkeld Cathedral. Among a host of musical guests the concerts will feature the stunningly talented Julie Fowlis, the vibrant sounds of the Blazin’ Fiddles, the multi-talented ‘BBC Folk Musician of the Year 2012’ Tim Edey, songwriter Buddy MacDonald from Cape Breton in Canada and rising star Edwina Hayes!...all joining ‘Scotland’s Musical Hero’ Dougie MacLean on stage during his ten day music extravaganza in beautiful autumnal Perthshire. Tickets for many of these will likely be sold out in advance…so get yours early! You can get information and order tickets online or by phone. Just visit www.perthshireamber.com or LIKE the Perthshire Amber Festival Facebook! The 2012 event which runs from Friday 26th October til Sunday 4th November will feature headline concerts featuring international and Scottish artists, evening cabarets, open mic sessions, masterclasses, workshops and talks and guided walks. You'll all be very welcome!
