Calum Ross

Calum Ross has been a loyal long serving Member of the Choir. He announced that the Dunoon Mod 2018 would be his last National Mod singing with the Choir. Since then he has continued to join us at practice (maybe because his wife Isabel and daughter Fiona are currently also Choir members), and he doesn`t like the peace and quiet of being home alone. !!!!

Calum won the Gold Medal at Dunoon 50 years previously and was invited to present the Gold Medals to the winners at the 2018 Mod. Below is a photo (courtsey of G Hood) of him being presented with a momento by Alan Campbell, from An Comunn.


MOD SUCCESSES

Dunoon Mod brought success to both Calum McColl, and Fiona Ross.

Calum Won the Traditional Learners Competition. He sang Balachan Ban, a song with strong connections to his own family, which would have made his late dad extremely proud. It is also pleasing to note that Alan McQuarrie made his Mod deput in the same Competition. Very well done Alan. 

Fiona was doubly successful, winning both her solo Competitions. The Mull or Iona song comp, and the Skye or Sutherland song comp.
