Subject: scottish concertina information

Hi folks

I am trying to find out any information about a Scottish concertina player by the name of A M Ross.

I assume he was playing and teaching in Maryhill around the 1920's period but cannot be sure. It may have been earlier even around 1900. I know he played the english system and that he may have owned or taught at a music school and may have been a performer in his own right. He may have been know as Professor Ross. His adress was at one time 499 or 599 Maryhill Road, Maryhill Glasgow Scotland.

My interest is academic.

You might also post your query at concertina.net. There's a lot of knowledgeable folk there who might have the answers. Also try concertina.com -- Tom

And here I thought this might be about another fingering system.

The flower of Scotland's musicians play the fiddle or the pipes. The concertina should be left to the city bankers south of the border. Any information is too much information. Keep Scotland concertina free.

*The* expert on the history of the concertina in Scotland is Stuart Eydmann, who is a regular on the Footstompin forum and teaches at the RSAMD (Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama). If he doesn't know he'll be *very* interested to know that he doesn't know.

Thanks almost everyone.

I had some very informative personal messages which I am grateful for. I didnt realise there was such a rich tradtion regarding the concertina in Scotland and I have already learned a lot. I didnt know Derek Moffat in the Mccalmns played the concertina and also thanks to Brian McNeil from the battlefield band who also plays, I didnt know that.

But main thanks to JACK CAMPIN. I discovered an essay by Eydmann entitled the The Working Class Adoption of the English Concertina. It seems Archibald Ross ran a Concertina shop and several concertina playing parlours that taught the Concertina. He didnt play himself apparently ( although I may have evidence otherwise) but has great aassociations with the concertina or "wee box" as he called it. I also see the AM Ross music trophy is still awarded as part of the Glasgow music festival.    thanks again

Once concertinas get old, and have four or five ciphers, they
call the ciphers 'drones' and ship them to Scotland.

Having just stumbled on this old thread, I thought I'd pose the question on The Concertina in Scotland site, to see if any members over there, there can add any more detail.

The Concertina in Scotland: AM Ross: Glasgow 1920s?

Cheers
Dick

Hi,

I wonder if anyone has any info on Archibald McIntyre Ross or the
A. M. Ross Memorial Trophy. He was a seller of musical instruments in Glasgow in the 1920's. I am his great grandson and live in Montreal.

I would appreciate any info.

Thanks

Peter R McNaughton
