Fergus McCreadie is one of the most exciting young jazz pianists in the world today. With his unique blend of Jazz and Scottish folk music inspired by his country’s sublime landscapes, Fergus has captured the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide.
Released on Edition Records to instant critical acclaim, ‘Forest Floor’ topped the UK Jazz & Blues charts, with sold-out shows wherever he played. 2022 has been a busy year for his trophy cabinet, being the only non-classical musician ever to be selected as a BBC New Generation Artist, a Mercury Prize nomination, and the JazzFM Award for Instrumentalist of the Year and Scottish Album of the Year Award on the same day.
Fergus has an innate depth, flair and natural expression that communicates beyond his years. His ability to transition from a full flowing, radiant pulse-wash of sound to a tranquil, first light stillness in a moment is simply breathtaking. We can’t wait to welcome this incredible trio (McCreadie – piano, Stephen Henderson – drums, David Bowden – double bass) to Belfast. “The most beautiful music that can be heard in jazz at the moment” – WrittenInMusic
“A trio capable of rivalling EST or The Bad Plus for sheer excitement” – Mojo
