John Anderson


Biographical info

Anderson lived 1737-1808, and died in Inverness (Baptie), but he moved round Scotland during his career. His first book, A Selection of the most Approved Highland Strathspeys was published in Edinburgh in 1789, dedicated to the Musical Society of Greenock. Another edition may have been later published in Perth (Alburger, 145), although this has not been verified. Anderson's Pocket Companion was published in Perth in 1795. Anderson's Budgets, published later in Edinburgh, postdate his death in Inverness as given by Baptie.
