Amber Acoustic Sessions

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’.

Music Sessions

Over the course of the three 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 this year Dougie and Jenny and members of the team should have the time to join 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.

In Dunkeld throughout Festival weekend the crowds are expected to descend on the four main pubs in the town, which could be hosting simultaneous acoustic music sessions. Try out the Pub of the Day first and if it’s full just move on to the next one! The sessions will be free and everyone is most welcome to come along to either sit back and enjoy or to bring voice and/or instrument and join in.

Over the course of the three days you can expect a host of musicians appearing at these sessions, from festival artists to visiting players and festival goers themselves…and this year Dougie and Jenny and members of the team should have the time to join in!
