Title: Southern Son

When it seems everywhere you go, everyone is talking about the "good old days," it's a welcome sight to have someone like Ross Moore come along and give us the kind of music and entertainment that we all miss so much. He plays twelve different instruments, including Autoharp, Dobro, Hammered Dulcimer, Mountain Dulcimer, 12 string Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin, Celtic Harp, Irish Pennywhistle, Psaltery, Concertina and Harmonica. Along with strong vocals, and his brand of down home humor, Ross puts on a show that captures the imagination of old and young alike. Ross has been in the entertainment business for over twenty-five years. After moving to Nashville, he performed for several months with the Twitty City Music Village; before being hired by Opryland Theme Park. He performed with many well-known entertainers such as Porter Wagoner, Little Jimmy Dickens, Bashful Brother Oswald, and the legendary George Burns. In the winter of l996 he was asked to bring his show to one of the grandest music halls in the country. The Ryman Auditorium invited Ross to do a six-week engagement for the Christmas holidays. The new show was such a success that his show was held over for two additional seasons. During 2002 Ross Moore was chosen to be one of the local musicians to perform at the Grand Opening of the new Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. Since the closing of Opryland Theme Park, this multi-talented musician has shared the love and knowledge of his acoustic instruments in educational workshops, as well as performing in concerts, folk festivals, conventions, youth camps, reunions and fund-raising events primarily across the southern and eastern United States. Ross recently received two nominations by the Southern Heritage Music Association, including Songwriter of the Year and Single of the Year, for "Southern Son". Additionally, he is an arranger, published songwriter, and to date, has three CDs which reflect his music over the years, namely Appalachian Sunset (Celtic/Folk music) Southern Son (a musical collection that encompasses the joy, sorrow and pride of the Southerners during the Civil War), and An Old Time Christmas (a magic combination of beloved Christmas songs and the instruments which knew them first) and is currently recording his latest offering, Road To Lisdoonvarna (a celebration of Ross' Celtic heritage) scheduled for release in the fall of 2007.
