Tommy Smith at Crossmichael Church
Tommy Smith is one of the world’s leading saxophonists and his solo saxophone concerts feature entirely acoustic performances of spontaneously chosen melodies drawn from the jazz, folk, classical and praise song traditions and highlight his wonderful tone reproduction and consummate improvising capabilities in an intimate conversation with the audience.
His compositions and work as a soloist extend to the symphonic arena, with albums including Modern Jacobite with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Tommy is also the founding director of the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra which he has built into a world class, award-winning big band
Built in 1751 and remodeled in 1842 by architect John Starforth Crossmicheal Church towers above the village of Crossmicheal, to the north of Castle Douglas. A congregation holds regular service service on Sundays. A church building was believed to be present prior to AD1547 as the earliest tombstone in the churchyard bears that date. The Churchyard has Covenanters graves dating from the ‘ Killing Times ‘ of the 1680, a fine enriched Gordon monument (1757), a table stone with an acrostic epitaph to Rev Andrew Dick, and three war graves.
