Fergus McCreadie Trio
Tue 28 May 2019
Fergus McCreadie is a phenomenal young pianist. Still only twenty-one and twice winner of the Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year Under 17 title, he released his first album, Turas, in early 2018 to rave reviews, including a five-star rating from the Scotsman.
He has since won the Best Instrumentalist title at the Scottish Jazz Awards, was a finalist in the BBC Young Jazz Musician 2018 and was nominated as Best Newcomer in the Parliamentary Jazz Awards, the UK’s most prestigious jazz awards, in 2018.
His music is dynamic and beautifully crafted, reflecting the Scottish landscape and musical traditions while honouring the American and European jazz legacies, and his rhythm team, David Bowden (bass) and Stephen Henderson (drums) from the award-winning quartet Square One, match his verve, skill and sensitivity with precision and unerring empathy.
