Perthshire Amber Open Mic Applications Now Open

Perthshire Amber Open Mic Applications Now Open

Feb 9, 2016

Applications are now open for the 2016 Open Mic at Perthshire Amber.

This year the afternoon Open Mic sessions will again be held in the “Wee Festival Hall” upstairs at The Royal Dunkeld Hotel and hosted by Ewen Sutherland, who is a fine performer in his own right as well as a wonderful and encouraging compere. Dougie and Ewen formed a folk duo while at school and then went on to form a band called Puddock’s Well, which had an influence on the development of what is now called “the celtic music scene”- with members Andy M Stewart and Martin Hadden joining well known folk band Silly Wizard And Dougie himself joining The Tannahill Weavers.

The Open Mic concept has been in existence for years at music festivals, but of late has become more widely known through the very successful Open Mic sessions started by Danny Kyle at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections Festival. The Open Mic gives the chance to musicians, who aren’t performing at the evening concerts, to get involved in the weekend’s music.

The most important thing about an Open Mic is the audience. Over the past years the welcoming, attentive and responsive audiences at the open mic sessions helped to make the events enjoyable for all the performers involved.

Celtic Music Radio are also looking forward to bringing you the Open Mic live, wherever you are in the world!

If you’d like to perform (Saturday 5th or Sunday 6th November 2016) click the image to read the info and follow instructions.

Now on DAB Digital Radio!

Now on DAB Digital Radio!

Dec 28, 2015

Celtic Music Radio can now be heard across Glasgow on DAB Digital Radio!

The boffins still have a little tinkering and pottering to do, but do let us know how it sounds.

How, though, we hear you ask, do I get Celtic Music Radio on my DAB receiver?

Easy Peasy!

Look for the button (or menu item) that says Auto Scan/Auto Tune.
Let your receiver re-tune your radio.
Once done, we should appear on your Station List as Celtic Music.

For the more technically minded, you find us on channel 10B. You can manually tune to that!

The DAB frequency is part of an Ofcom trial lasting 9 months.
We would appreciate your comments and suggestions on the service via email:

Exciting Times!

Exciting Times!

Dec 22, 2015

These are exciting times for all of us at Celtic Music Radio 95FM.

In the near future, the station will be moving to a new base as part of our commitment to provide a Festival Of Music every day of the year.

As you will appreciate, this involves a range of technical issues.

So while our backroom wizards apply their magic it does mean our round-the-clock programme schedules may have to be juggled around a bit, here and there.

This could result in some of our usual programmes not being on air for a short period. But the music will play on.

At Celtic Connections, for example, we’ll be presenting live broadcasts from the Royal Concert Hall in the heart of Glasgow.

Your leading community radio station, the only one in the UK dedicated to Scottish and Irish Celtic music, is looking forward to the new studio HQ move.

We continue with the wide range of music you enjoy on 95FM in the Glasgow area, or online at
