Fergus McCreadie Trio

Pianist Fergus McCreadie’s trio is among the leaders of the exciting young wave currently energising the vibrant and creative Scottish jazz scene.

 

A phenomenal technician, McCreadie has developed a deeply personal style that captures Scotland’s musical traditions and landscapes while honouring his American and Nordic influences. He has worked with fellow young Scottish musicians including jazz-funk-folk juggernaut Fat-Suit, drummer Graham Costello’s STRATA, singer Luca Manning and saxophonist Matt Carmichael and collaborated with award-winning trumpeter Laura Jurd.

 

His trio with David Bowden (bass) and Stephen Henderson (drums) has made a major impression in the UK, winning the coveted Peter Whittingham Jazz Prize in 2016, and its debut album, Turas, as well as reaching the shortlist for the Scottish Album of the Year Award 2019, a rare feat for a jazz group, won Best Album at the Scottish Jazz Awards 2019.

 

Their concerts, highlighting their thrilling virtuosity, brilliantly attuned collective dynamism and their music’s huge emotional charge, have earned five-star reviews and invitations to appear at London jazz mecca Ronnie Scotts’ International Piano Trio Festival as well as Oslo and Stockholm jazz festivals.
