Fergus McCreadie Trio

Young Scottish pianist Fergus McCreadie alternates modern jazz with Scottish folk music. Keith Jarrett and Glenn Gould are included as inspiration for this young Scot who made his record debut in 2018 with Turas, a record that received great reviews.

The follow-ups Cairn and Forest Floor meet the high expectations of young McCreadie’s trio, where the other musicians are bassist David Bowden and drummer Stephen Henderson.

The trio has clear predecessors in classic piano jazz with e.s.t as an obvious point of reference, but thoughts also go to Fergus’s own generation mate Joel Lyssarides Trio.

Fergus McCready’s music is characterized by a powerful drive and a settled stillness. The trio has its own approach to tradition where they crack up the classic jazz references with Scottish folk music. In this, the trio lands in a modern Jan Johansson fashion, on Scottish soil.

Don’t miss this very interesting piano promise from Jamestown in the Scottish Highlands!
