Graduate of the Month: Fergus McCreadie

Published: 14/02/2019

Fergus McCreadie (BMus Jazz 2018) is one of Scotland’s most exciting young artists.

Awarded the Best Instrumentalist Award at the Scottish Jazz Awards aged only 20, his debut album, Turas, has earned Fergus and his trio widespread praise. 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.

Fergus returns to the Royal Conservatoire to perform in our Fridays at One concert on Friday 15 February.

Here’s our video interview with this rising star in the Scottish jazz scene.
