Award-winning Glasgow-based pianist Fergus McCreadie’s trio has been invited to appear at the world-famous London jazz club Ronnie Scott’s International Piano Trio Festival on August 3.
Twenty-one-year-old McCreadie, who graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s jazz course last June and won the Best Instrumentalist title at the Scottish Jazz Awards 2018, has already made an impression internationally. His trio recently toured Norway, Sweden, Estonia and Lithuania successfully as well as playing concerts in England and Scotland. This will be his third visit to Ronnie Scott’s this year following enthusiastically received appearances there in January and May.
McCreadie’s trio has concerts lined up at the upcoming Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stockholm jazz festivals and at the Edinburgh Fringe and before that the group will open for saxophonist Tommy Smith, in his concert with pianist Brian Kellock and Gaelic singer Kathleen MacInnes, at the Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh on Thursday, June 13 as part of the venue’s 40th anniversary programme.
