The first Scottish contest at which the famous English brass bands appeared. 23 bands competed, each limited to 25 performers. The judge was Mr. Charles Godfrey, bandmaster, Royal Horse Guards (The Blues). The proceedings were commenced at one o'clock by the combined bands, representing six hundred performers, playing the National Anthem. The proceedings closed at seven o'clock by the bands in mass playing a "Grand Contest March," composed expressly for this occasion. Both of the combined performances were conducted by Mr. Harry O'Neil, the famous cornet-player, one of the Queen's Trumpeters, who had the entire management of the proceedings.
