Jenny Sturgeon

Jenny Sturgeon is a singer-songwriter described as "a significant new talent" (Bright Young Folk) on the folk and acoustic scenes. Jenny's music is rich with imagery and her songs are bound together by common threads of folklore, history and the connection people have with the wild. Having trained as a biologist her enthusiasm for nature and wild places effortlessly creeps in to all of her work. Sometimes joined by renowned Old Blind Dogs fiddle player and guitarist Jonny Hardie.

Sturgeon's songcraft is at the centre of her engaging and honest performance, with accompaniment on guitar, harmonium and dulcimer she has been described as "a wonderful singer who can change the atmosphere in the room with her affecting delivery" (Boo Hewerdine). In 2018 she was nominated as Composer Of The Year in the Scots Trad Music Awards.

With her three solo records, Source To Sea, From The Skein and The Wren and The Salt Air; Jenny is currently working on her next album - a collection of songs inspired by Nan Shepherd's book 'The Living Mountain'. 

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 Inge Thomson - described as "like watching a David Attenborough documentary but with awesome music!".

Jenny's 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 and doing live sessions for Travelling Folk and BBC Radio 3. 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.
