Awarded the ‘Best Instrumentalist’ Award at the Scottish Jazz Awards aged only 20, Fergus McCreadie is one of Scotland’s most exciting young artists. His debut album with his trio, ‘Turas,’ was praised for ‘reflecting his engagement with the Scottish landscape and musical tradition while also showing a firm grasp of the Jazz Piano tradition,’ (Jazz In Europe) and received a 5-star review in the Scotsman. Here, Fergus performances in a unique solo setting, embracing his equal love of Jazz, Scottish Folk and Classical music in original compositions that are deep in musical traditions, but always embrace the dynamics and freedom of improvisation.
