Glasgow Jazz Festival, Regular Music & Synergy Concerts presents Fergus McCreadie Trio

Mackintosh Queen’s Cross | Friday 21 June 2024 at 7.30pm (Doors open 7.00pm)

Tickets £28.56 (available from Glasgow Jazz Festival)

In the dynamic landscape of contemporary jazz, Scottish pianist and composer Fergus McCreadie has carved a remarkable niche. Since 2021, his career has skyrocketed, marked by two acclaimed album releases that propelled him into the limelight – shortlisted for the Mercury Prize and clinching the Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) for “Forest Floor.” His debut with Edition Records, “Cairn” (2021), set the stage for a journey deeply rooted in natural themes.

McCreadie’s latest venture, “Stream,” continues this intriguing exploration, this time delving into the essence of water. Accompanied by his long-standing comrades, David Bowden and Stephen Henderson, the album flows with the fluidity of its namesake. It’s a musical stream that flows through the rich landscapes of Scottish folklore and the sophisticated avenues of contemporary jazz, blending them seamlessly.
