Fergus McCreadie

+ Juliette Lemoine & Chris Amer

EFG London Jazz Festival 2024 / Scotland Unwrapped

Critically acclaimed Scottish pianist Fergus McCreadie plays the opening night of the EFG London Jazz Festival at Kings Place with music from his new album ‘Stream,’ following two sold out performances in our Scotland Unwrapped series in January. With support from Scottish cello and guitar duo Juliette Lemoine and Chris Amer.


In the dynamic landscape of contemporary jazz, Scottish pianist and composer Fergus McCreadie has carved a remarkable niche. Since 2021 his career has skyrocketed, propelled him into the international limelight by two acclaimed releases: his debut album Cairn (Edition Records 2021) set the stage for a journey deeply rooted in natural themes, while Forest Floor (Edition Records 2022) was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize and clinching Scottish Album of the Year – the first ever Scottish jazz album to do so.

This year, Fergus has toured extensively with contemporary string ensemble the Manchester Collective, been broadcast on BBC Radio 3 from Queen Elizabeth Hall, undertaken a weekend residency at Snape Maltings, and was announced as an official Yamaha Artist.

His latest album, Stream, continues this intriguing exploration of natural landscapes, this time delving into the essence of water. Accompanied by his long-standing comrades David Bowden (double bass) and Stephen Henderson (drums), Fergus’s music flows through the rich landscapes of Scottish folklore and the sophisticated avenues of contemporary jazz, blending them seamlessly.

Fergus McCreadie is a Yamaha Artist, and a current member of the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist programme.

This event will last approximately 2 hours, including an interval.

Set times:
8.00pm-8.30pm Juliette Lemoine & Chris Amer
8.50pm-10.05pm Fergus McCreadie

About Juliette Lemoine and Chris Amer: 

Two exceptional and accomplished new voices on the Scottish music scene, Juliette Lemoine and Chris Amer together explore traditional Scottish music with originality, energy and depth. Since launching her SAY Award long-listed album Soaring with a sold-out performance at Celtic Connections 2023, cellist Juliette has continued to cement her status as a trailblazer, progressing and redefining the cello within Scottish traditional music. Chris Amer plays a unique 5-string theorbed tenor guitar and exemplifies a thoughtful, musically intelligent playing style. As a unique duo, their live performances are an immersive dialogue characterised by rich emotional colour, close interaction and vibrant spontaneity.
