Fergus McCreadie Trio

Fri 18th June at 7:30pm

Fergus McCreadie Trio

One of the hottest young groups in European jazz, pianist Fergus McCreadie’s trio has begun 2021 in terrific form. Released in January on the prestigious Edition Records label, the trio’s second album, Cairn earned five stars from Mojo and four stars from Jazzwise and The Times. It was also acclaimed as one of the key jazz albums of 2021 by prominent industry observers even before its release.

The trio’s music is dynamic and a genuine group endeavour by McCreadie, bassist David Bowden and drummer Stephen Henderson. Beautifully crafted, it reflects the Scottish landscape and musical traditions while honouring the American and European jazz legacies. Its huge emotional pull has brought audiences to their feet across Northern Europe and resulted in a headline appearance at Ronnie Scott’s International Piano Trio Festival.

McCreadie has been winning awards since his mid-teens and the trio’s debut album, Turas, released in 2018, showed extraordinary maturity. It won the Album of the Year title at both the Parliamentary Jazz Awards – the UK’s most coveted jazz prizes – and the Scottish Jazz Awards. McCreadie himself went on to win the Best Instrumentalist title at the Scottish Jazz Awards in 2018 and 2020.

Chosen as Jazz FM’s featured album of the week, Cairn marks the further development of McCreadie’s composing talents and the trio’s ability to think, create and play with one voice, qualities that make their live performances such exuberant, uplifting and soul-stirring experiences.

Fergus McCreadie Trio will also premiere a new piece of music specially commissioned by the festival at their show.

“A trio capable of rivalling EST or The Bad Plus for sheer excitement…” – Mojo

“real personality … lucidly atmospheric … fire and virtuosity” – The Times

“Simply outstanding” – Jazzwise

PRIME TRIO

Prime Trio, comprising of guitarist Kevin Mackenzie with former Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year, Peter Johnstone on organ and first-call drummer Doug Hough.

“While Johnstone is a highly accomplished pianist, his ability as an organist on this recording is quite stunning, sharing the lead alongside MacKenzie’s superb guitar playing. Doug Hough’s accompaniment is exemplary throughout. I’m none too sure whether jazz of this standard can simply be referred to as ‘feel good music’, but under the current state of the nation (so to speak), this is food for the soul.” Brian Palmer

“An organ trio in the true sense of the word, guitar, organ, drums. Bounce, which moves to swing and the lads have all the time in the world to enunciate the most musical language while in communion with each other and the music. Beautiful playing!” Linley Hamilton, Jazz World, BBC Radio Ulster

Georgia Cécile

Georgia Cécile is at the helm of an exciting new wave of UK female jazz talents. Tipped as ‘One To Watch’ by BBC Introducing and Jazzwise Magazine, Cécile’s stock has been rising on the strength of her live performances and her songwriting partnership with award-winning pianist/composer Euan Stevenson. Her accessible approach to jazz provides the key to her crossover appeal as she cites modern contemporaries such as Melody Gardot and Gregory Porter as influences – but takes her inspiration from artists such as Nancy Wilson, Nina Simone and Stevie Wonder. She marked International Women’s Day this year by performing live for BBC’s Jazz Nights and featured in Jazzwise’s ‘Women In Jazz 2021’.

Her live-in-session release ‘Blue Is Just A Colour’ premiered on BBC Radio 2’s Jamie Cullum show, following sold-out UK festival shows and picking up a nomination for ‘Vocalist of the Year’ at the prestigious 2020 Jazz FM awards. Cécile now looks forward to releasing several singles and exciting video content ahead of her debut album later this year. Her Glasgow Jazz Festival 2021 concert live from St Lukes in Glasgow will feature her quintet – Euan Stevenson, Mario Caribe, Max Popp and Konrad Wiszniewski, and will showcase a selection of original music alongside fresh arrangements of jazz standards.
