Lyth's Jazz Exchange programme continues with a two day intensive workshop led by Scotland's number one jazz performer, Tommy Smith. The workshop is principally for members of the Caithness Big Band, however, if space allows, other interested musicians may take part (please contact us ). The band will rehearse under Tommy's guidance in preparation for the performance on Saturday night. The following morning the band will reconvene for a feedback session and hopefully more playing!
