Manawatu's Scottish bands - numbers one, two and three - came together on Saturday night to perform a concert at the Speirs Centre, Palmerston North, along with Celtic group Ceol Manawatu.
Manawatu Scottish Society secretary Brent Le Quesne said the No 1 band was internationally competitive, while the No 3 was for up-and-coming players.
There were about 80 people on stage for the two-hour, 20-minute concert, which included a performance from the Ohakea/Linton kapa haka group.
Four-year-old Dylan Jones was on stage at the very start with his set of mini-bagpipes. Mr Le Quesne said he was like a mascot for the Scottish bands.
The No 2 and No 3 bands are holding a "Celtic tatty growing" contest, offering prizes for the biggest potato grown from seed. If you are interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Mr Le Quesne on 027 289 8711.
