    Dear Lyth and all it contains. My thanks to you all for a great jazz night with Brian K and Tommy S on 27 June.. I had come north from Arran for that event alone, a 12-hour journey by public transport with luggage, 5 changes, and in the middle of a ferry strike. AND it was worth every minute. You are still creating magic at Lyth. On arrival the place crackled with the excitement and anticipation. The Lyth team, yourselves, welcomed us as hosts rather than staff, with us as treasured guests rather than audience. It was clear that the players were delighted to be there, and of course, with such a small venue, we got full value from being so close to the action and to mingling with the players after the show. At interval and afterwards the joy and appreciation was tangible. It was great to yarn with others while contrasting the sophistication of world-class Jazzmen with coffee and a buttered pancake any auntie would be proud of! What you offer at Lyth, and what you deliver, are testament to powerful creative planning and delivery. I live in Edinburgh, a stone’s-throw from Queens Hall and Festival Theatre and close to all other major venues. I am a former Education Officer at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall with its partners, The City Halls and Fruitmarket. Exciting as they all are, they can’t touch the special quality of an intimate and amazing venue such as Lyth Arts Centre. You are unique. I am always proud, as a Caithnesian, of what you do. I only wish I was North more often. I look forward to seeing the exhibition next trip, at the beginning of August. Will there be pancakes? Meantime, thanks a million for one of the most memorable concerts I have ever seen. Here’s power tae yer elbow!
