Fergus McCreadie Trio at Deeside Community Theatre

A concert by a brilliant jazz trio – sitting in comfortable seats, listening, relaxing, letting your batteries get recharged, perhaps with a drink in your hand…….

The trio is led by McCreadie, who emerged as a teenage virtuoso, but has developed into a complete musician, a passionate communicator and a consummate performer. His debut album, Turas, self-released in 2018, won the Album of the Year title at both the Parliamentary Jazz Awards and the Scottish Jazz Awards and McCreadie himself went on to win the Best Instrumentalist title at the Scottish Jazz Awards in 2018 and 2020.
Formed in 2016 with double bassist David Bowden and drummer Stephen Henderson, McCreadie’s Trio has developed the ability to think, create, change direction instantly and play spontaneously with one voice, a quality that makes its live performances such exuberant, uplifting and soul-stirring experiences.

The trio’s music is dynamic and beautifully crafted, reflecting 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, resulting in appearances at Ronnie Scott’s International Piano Trio Festival and Oslo, Stockholm and Limerick jazz festivals. Will they do the same in Aboyne?
