Newtongrange PSA Concert, 1916, page 3

This is the third page of a programme for a traditional Scottish music concert held at Newtongrange Picture Palace on 27th April 1916, featuring 'The Strathspey King', James Scott Skinner. In Part II Skinner performs an 'Heroic Selection' which contains several of his well-known compositions including 'The Miller o' Hirn' and 'The Spey in Spate'.

The concert was put on by Newtongrange & District P.S.A. [Pleasant Sunday Afternoon] Brotherhood. This inter-denominational association was first founded in 1875 by the Nottingham printer, John Blackham, with the intention of promoting practical Christianity in everyday life, through Sabbath day meetings devoted to religious and educational instruction. The movement gradually spread throughout the country. The Newtongrange & District branch held their meetings in the local picture house for many years after its opening in 1915
