Fergus McCreadie is one of the most exciting young jazz pianists on the world stage. With his unique blend of Jazz and Scottish folk music inspired by his country’s sublime landscapes, Fergus captures the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide.
Released on Edition Records to instant critical acclaim, his latest record Forest Floor topped the UK Jazz & Blues charts, prompting sold-out performances at Queen's Hall, Edinburgh and Love Supreme festival this summer, and earning him a well-deserved spot on the 2022 Mercury Prize shortlist for best British or Irish album of the last 12 months, alongside the likes of Little Simz, Self Esteem, Sam Fender and Harry Styles.
For this exclusive London date, Fergus will perform with his trio, featuring long-term collaborators David Bowden (double bass) and Stephen Henderson (drums). With their profoundly mesmerising and compelling music, they have the necessary instrumental command, communication and originality to make this one of the UK's must-see concerts of the year.

'McCreadie is capable of incredible, intricate keyboard runs. But he mostly plays with lyrical restraint, drawing out beautiful, singable melodies that effortlessly evoke the beauty of the Caledonian forest.'
'His music may be rooted in the Scottish landscape but Fergus McCreadie is a world class act.'
The Jazz Man
'A giddying fusion of Scottish culture and jazz history.'
