Jazz Steps: Fergus McCreadie Trio
Thursday 26 May @ 7.30 PM
Fergus McCreadie is a complete and well-rounded musician, a passionate communicator and consummate performer. He is a composer of elegant, nuanced and captivating music as well as a pianist and improviser of exceptional ability and originality.
The music is dynamic and it excites with a youthful but masterful flair. Fergus’, compositions move effortlessly from impressionistic modal searchings to high octane, hard driving jigs and nuanced ballads underpinned by democratic improvisation.
Above all else there is a distinct Scottish feel to his music. He paints pictures of lochs & Munroes (Scottish mountains over 3000 ft to the uninitiated) as well as of images of Scottish Ceilidhs with the scotch flowing. Grab a wee dram from the bar sit back and try to stop your feet from tapping.
This is a night you’ll be sure to remember.
Fergus McCreadie (piano) David Bowden (bass) Stephen Henderson (drums)
