A welcome return of our festival after last year's successful 3-day 2018 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 what you can enjoy in 2019.  The website is always a 'work in progress' and information, events and musicians will be added throughout the year...and throughout the festival! keep coming back for updates.
