Fergus McCreadie: Exclusive Livestream Concert @ The Globe.

(Press release)
We can’t run gigs at The Globe currently but this WON’T STOP US bringing you the very best new music! We are pleased to announce the fourth of our exclusive livestream concerts.
On Sunday 31 May at 8pm we’re delighted to be able to bring you an exclusive and intimate concert by award-winning jazz pianist Fergus McCreadie, which we will stream live to you through Facebook and YouTube. You can watch the gig again on either platform at any time.

So that Fergus can get paid, we ask you to pay a small ‘entrance fee’, which we recommend should be £5 per person. If you are able to pay a bit more this will be really welcome at this time when gig income for musicians has completely stopped and is unlikely to return in the very near future.
Fergus McCreadie is one of Scotland’s most exciting young talents. Born in Jamestown, near Strathpeffer, he grew up in Dollar and graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in 2018.
As well as winning the prestigious Peter Whittingham Jazz Award with his trio in 2016, he has twice won the Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the year under-17s Prize and is the winner of the Guy Jones Prize, the Joe Temperley Prize from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and the Linda Trahan Memorial Prize from St Andrews University.
His trio has featured at the Glasgow, Edinburgh, Fife, Aberdeen and Islay jazz festivals regularly and has toured in Norway, Sweden, Lithuania and Estonia. The group has also appeared at Oslo and Stockholm jazz festivals and the Ronnie Scott’s International Piano Trio Festival.
Released in Spring 2018, the trio’s debut album, Turas, has been praised for “reflecting his engagement with the Scottish landscape and musical traditions while also showing a firm grasp of the jazz piano tradition” (Jazz in Europe). Turas won Album of the Year at the Parliamentary Jazz Awards 2019 and Best Album at the Scottish Jazz Awards 2019, following on from McCreadie’s Best Instrumentalist title at the 2018 awards.
McCreadie’s music is an innovative blend of jazz and Scottish traditional music. Turas (Scottish Gaelic for ‘Journey’) features eight original compositions which are designed to take the listener on an auditory journey of Scotland. Depicting scenes from the Western Isles to the East Neuk of Fife, the music is evocative of the landscapes from which it has taken its inspiration.
TO ATTEND THE GIG PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:
1. Make a donation via the following link.
Donate what you can afford, £5 per person is the suggested minimum. Please do so as early as possible, as a rush of requests just before the gig may result in some people missing the start.
2. When we have received notification of your donation we will send you an email with instructions on how to view the livestream on both Facebook and YouTube. Please note that it may take several hours for us to respond.
3. We recommend that you access and save the Facebook and/or YouTube links as soon as you receive our instructions. On Sunday 31 May 'doors open' at 7.45pm to give you time to check your set up, get comfortable and chat with other members of the audience.
