Perthshire Amber: The Douggie Maclean Festival

From 29 October to 7 November at different venues throughout Perthshire, Perthshire Amber is an established autumn folk festival celebrating Scottish music.

Dougie MacLean is "Scotland's pre-eminent singer-songwriter and a national musical treasure" (Performing Songwriter USA) who has developed a unique festival which shares with visitors from Scotland and abroad his native and very beautiful scenery, as well as his music and musical friends. This 10 day festival features international and Scottish musicians of the highest calibre. The concerts are staged in a variety of wonderful venues from an iron age crannog on Loch Tay, to historic Blair Castle and Castle Menzies and atmospheric Dunkeld Cathedral to the Festival Theatre in Pitlochry. Yet the Festival is so much more than the music concerts. There are workshops, walks, talks, open mic sessions and a Young Songwriter’s Showcase as well as Cabaret Amber (free early evening music). It's also a celebration of the history and culture of this unique county in the heart of Scotland, at a time of the year when Perthshire is ablaze with rich autumnal colour
