Songwriting Workshop with Jenny Sturgeon 11 May

May 11 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Minginish Community Hall

Jenny Sturgeon is a singer-songwriter “who brings together the old and new with a rare skill” (R2 Magazine). Jenny’s music is rich with imagery and her songs are bound together by common threads of nature and the connection people have within the landscape.
In this two-hour workshop, you will explore lyrics, melody, and song structure, providing you with a series of tools to help get the most out of your songwriting.

The workshop is open to any level of experience – from complete beginners to experienced songwriters.


Jenny’s songcraft is at the centre of her engaging and honest performance, with accompaniment on guitar, harmonium and piano she has been described as “a wonderful singer who can change the atmosphere in the room with her affecting delivery” (Boo Hewerdine).  Musical collaborations include writing and performing in the critically acclaimed alt-folk band Salt House and in the bird and migration inspired project, Northern Flyway; a Creative Scotland and PRS Foundation funded audio-visual project that Jenny co-wrote with musician Inge Thomson – described as “like watching a David Attenborough documentary but with awesome music!”.

Her music has been played on BBC Radio Scotland, Radio 3, Radio 6 Music, Radio 2, and Radio Nan Gaidheal – including being featured as artist of the week, live sessions for Travelling Folk and BBC Radio 3 and being featured on BBC Radio 4 Front Row. Jenny’s release ‘The Wren and The Salt Air’ – a commission for The National Trust of Scotland – featured on national STV news. Her song ‘Charmer’ was featured at number 9 of The Herald’s best 100 songs of 2018.
