Fergus McCreadie Trio
Formed by award-winning pianist Fergus McCreadie - along with David Bowden and Stephen Henderson - the trio plays a wide selection of inventive originals from all members of the band. The three share an uncanny connection with interaction at the core of the group's sound, and gigs cover several styles ranging from hard bop to ECM style ballads. Fergus McCreadie is the recipient of the Peter Whittingham Award 2016. The award will go towards recording an album in a remote Scottish setting of his own compositions, which are a fusion between jazz and Scottish traditional music for piano trio. Fergus also intends on touring the album once this has been completed, promoting himself further afield in France, Germany and Norway.
This year the trio has been featured at the Fife, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh Jazz Festivals, and the Islay Jazz Festival.
