Rootsbase: Fergus McCreadie Trio
A new live music club - dedicated to presenting the very best in folk, trad and roots-based!
Fergus McCreadie is one of Scotland’s most exciting young artists. Awarded the Best Instrumentalist Award at the Scottish Jazz Awards aged only 20, he has been gigging frequently around Scotland since his mid-teens.
He is also a member of Graham Costello’s STRATA, described as ‘groovy yet cerebral’ by BBC Radio Scotland, and of the Mark Hendry Octet and the Matthew Carmichael Quartet, both of whom have recently released their debut album. He is also a frequent sideman to electronic artist Werkha, having travelled to Estonia recently to perform with the band.
As well as the Best Instrumentalist award, Fergus is a winner of the coveted Peter Wittingham Jazz Award, the Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the year u17s Prize, the Guy Jones, Joe Temperly and George Duncan prizes from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and the Linda Trahan Memorial Prize from St Andrews University.
