The Unfurrowed Field

The Unfurrowed Field is a joyful fusion of jazz and Scottish folk music.

Humans love categories – drawing lines between ideas, people, genres and moods. But the music we love, no matter how old or new, traditional or contemporary, often has far more in common than we think…

This show is bound to surprise and delight as Mercury Prize-nominated pianist Fergus McCreadie and his spellbinding trio of jazz musicians join the Manchester Collective string quartet to blast through an irresistible collection of music that lives somewhere between the boundaries of jazz, new classical and folk.

Alongside a brand new set by Fergus, fellow Scotsman and Collective favourite Donald Grant is arranging a collection of traditional folk tunes for this unlikely band of players. It’s music that goes straight to the heart, full of warmth and optimism.

There’s no doubt this gig is going to be a lot of fun. Come join the party.
