Jenny Sturgeon The Living Mountain 10 May
May 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
THE LIVING MOUNTAIN
A lyrical, melodic and visual interpretation of the works of Nan Shepherd
Acclaimed Scottish singer-songwriter, Jenny Sturgeon, presents The Living Mountain, a solo audio-visual performance inspired by Nan Shepherd’s celebrated book of the same name. The project explores Nan’s writing, the Cairngorm mountain range and human connections with the wild through lyrical, melodic and visual interpretation. The live performance features music by Jenny Sturgeon and film curated by Shona Thomson; with stunning imagery from Scotland The Big Picture, filmmakers Robyn Spice and Hannah Bailey, as well as 1940s archive film from National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive. The meditative experience of the combined audio and imagery are a soothing and poignant exploration of what it means to connect with a landscape and to find a sense of place.
The Living Mountain tour in November 2021 saw audiences in sold out venues enjoy what was described as an “outstanding piece of multi-media art… [where] inspired literature, gorgeously curated music and innovative filmmaking collide in a mosaic of integrated art” (Three Chords and The Truth – live review here). Jenny’s album ‘The Living Mountain’ was nominated for the Scottish Album of the Year awards in 2021, and in 2020 won Best Acoustic at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards.
Jenny is touring The Living Mountain in 2022, with projection by Grant Anderson.
