Fergus McCreadie

Labeled as "the most exciting new talent to emerge from Scotland in a decade" (Jazz Scotland), the Fergus McCreadie Trio are poised to take a place as one of Jazz's most compelling outfits. Comprising of McCreadie on Piano, David Bowden on Bass, and Stephen Henderson on drums, the music in an innovative blend of Jazz and Scottish Traditional Music. The compositions are new, fresh and exciting - but they also strike that point of familiarity for a listener that can make them seem like songs they have known since childhood. Improvisational freedom clashes with the rugged beauty of Scottish landscape to create a space where an audience can languish in the vivid imagery of Scotland's scenery while also being challenged by the unpredictable nature of improvised music

In a very small New England church, the organist ends her final hymn. The clamor of the socializing begins as families and seniors begin making their way to relatives, friends, and warm, familiar conversation. As the peacefulness of the day almost subsides completely, an anxious spark within two very small brothers sends them straight away to the church's spinet piano where the friendly noises all around provide them with more than adequate "cover" for their somewhat theatrical re-creations of Mrs. Butler's powerful, gospel-influenced stylings. Most of the people didn't complain too much, but boy, did we have a great time! Years later, I would add on to my treasured early "experience," studying both technique and performance with Professor Emeritus Henry Santos, a renowned concert pianist, music scholar, and historian
