Embracing folk, Americana, jazz and soul, Ross Wilson aka Blue Rose Code's music addresses universal themes of love, loss, home and hard times in a deeply personal way. His soulful eclecticism has rightly earned comparisons to John Martyn, Van Morrison and Tom Waits.
His fifth album, With Healings Of The Deepest Kind was released in 2020 to huge acclaim. Taking his emotional honesty to new levels, it’s the most fully realised rendition of his singular vision to date. An artist who loves to connect with his audience, a Blue Rose Code show is always an unforgettable and truly uplifting experience.
"Healings is ravishingly beautiful, a burnished blaze of Caledonian Soul, muted jazz and poetic recitation…A bruised peach of a record." Uncut 8/10

Welcome to Birnam Arts, a boutique multi-purpose arts, conferencing and entertainment venue.
Pop in to the Foyer Cafe for breakfast, grab a delicious coffee with a selection of our homemade baking or enjoy a light lunch whilst browsing on the free WiFi. Wander upstairs to view the latest of our monthly art exhibitions before visiting the world of Beatrix Potter, or the Gift Shop to purchase a special gift for your loved ones or yourself!
This is a lovely light and welcoming building with a cafe and library during the day and some really excellent concerts and shows of all genres mostly in the evening. It's an intimate space but with capacity for several hundred people and tends to be competitively priced. It relies on volunteer support and is an excellent community hub.

The food scene in Dunkeld and Birnam is becoming a go-to for food lovers and we're proud to be part of the that story.
Birnam Arts has been host to great memories and moments, from dancing my heart out at weddings to speaking at conferences to enjoying wonderful music ... this place does it all and is an important hub. We look forward to the time we can enjoy BA to its full once again.

We pride ourselves in supporting emerging and established makers alongside contemporary brands such as Harris Tweed, and offer a range of books on Perthshire, as well as V&A Stationery and gifts for the wee ones.
Such lovely memories of coming to Birnam as a wee one, visiting the garden and the exhibition then exploring the woods that inspired Beatrix Potter.

Birnam Arts delivers a programme of monthly exhibitions showing work by artists at varying stages of their careers within both solo and group exhibitions.
We continually develop new opportunities to support the practice and development of Scottish based artists, whilst also bringing work that is inspiring, creative and different to the contemporary art scene in rural Perthshire.
We’ve always enjoyed Birnam Arts and all it has to offer - lovely venue, library and classes and a great friendly cafe.

Located upstairs of the original Victorian part of Birnam Arts, our Visual Arts and Performing Arts studios are where much of the creative magic at Birnam Arts takes place.
You really are the heart of our community and we can’t afford to lose you. Thank you to everyone working so hard to protect our village treasure.

Have always enjoyed BA whether for coffee or concerts. I look forward to many more years of enjoyment.
