LAST YEAR .... IN LIGHT OF THE UK GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCEMENT (MARCH 16th 2020) REGARDING THE VIRUS SITUATION, THE NIEL GOW FESTIVAL 2020
Sadly, due to the ongoing situation, we were obliged to cancel the "live" 2021 Niel Gow Festival, BUT ...
In collaboration with Tunes in the Hoose, a virtual festival can now be viewed FREE online!!
The annual Niel Gow Festival is a celebration in music of the life of Niel Gow (1727-1807), regarded by many as the patriarch of the Scottish fiddle tradition. With concerts, workshops, informal sessions and guided walks, it attracts visitors from all over the world. And all in the beautiful landscape of highland Perthshire which inspired Niel Gow almost three centuries ago.

One of the ultimate goals of the Festival has always been to create a conspicuous memorial to Niel Gow in Dunkeld, situated in a prominent position for all to see. That goal was achieved on 10th December 2020. Thank you everyone who made it possible.
