ABOUT THE EVENT
Singer-songwriter, Jenny Sturgeon, has been working for the last two years on a CD of songs and, together with filmmaker Shona Thomson, creating an audio-visual performance based on The Living Mountain by celebrated North-East writer and University of Aberdeen alumna Nan Shepherd. Jenny and Shona talk about the origins and experience of working on the project, which explores Nan’s writing, the Cairngorm mountain range, what it means to connect with a wild landscape and to find a sense of place. With musical tasters from the CD/performance and an insight into next year’s Covid-postponed launch tour. Described as ‘a wonderful singer,’ who ‘brings together the old and new with rare skill’, Jenny appears with alt-folk band Salt-house. Her recent collaborations include migration-inspired Northern Flyways, with Inge Thomson and Jason Singh.
