Nordic Showcase: Fergus McCreadie Trio

The Fergus McCreadie Trio is one of Scotland’s most exciting groups. They have played the Edinburgh, Glasgow, Fife, Aber- deen and Islay Jazz Festivals repeatedly, and to much acclaim. The music of the trio blurs the lines between Jazz and Scottish music. Their tunes feature the improvisation and harmony of Jazz, but it is the introduction of Folk melodies and rhythms that make this music so alluring. In uences from Keith Jarrett, PatMetheny and Jan Garbarek can be heard, but also folk artists such as the Gloaming and Lau.
