Band Concert.

There was a fair attendance at the OdtJfellows'Hall last, evening, when the Ashburtou County Brass B.ind gava their first papular concert of this season. The programme was opened by a fine march "Under Freedom's Fiftg" (Nowowieski) by the Band, under the baton of Bandmaster Humphries, which was played with the necessary spirit and swing. Bandsman T. M. Clark gave an Jmpve.jaive rendering " The Holy City " as a cornet solo, accompanied by the full Band. The Band also played a selection " Gem 3of British So;ig," which included many well-known English Scotch and Irish airs. The Band's caneluding item waa tha commamoriitive overture "Victoria" (llolloway), which was performed with exceptional taste and ability, the blending of the various parrs being almost perfert. The items by the Band throughout the evening were greatly appreciated and heartily applauded. The recent change m the instrumentation of the band, introducing first and second slide trombones, has made a great improvement m the general effect of the band'a playing, especially where ba^s solos occur m the score. Miss Kidd, who waa m very good voice, received an encore for her rendering of " Whisper, and f shall Hear/ 1 and later m the evening was very successful with " The Land of little Children." Miss Buchanan, L.A.8., sang " The Rose " and " The river and the Sea," m a very artistic manner, and also played as a violin solo ",Dudziarz" (Wieniowaki), the florid passages of which were managed with much skill, while the quieter movement was played with sympathy and expression. Messrs Anderson, Flower, and Seymour scored a success with " Three men, they went a hunting,' Mr W. Anderson later contributing a Highland Fling, which was enthusiastically encored. Mr Bert Flower's descriptive songs were very acceptable to the audience, and he received a well deserved encore.
