JENNY STURGEON – The Living Mountain

24 May

£8 – £9

JENNY STURGEON – The Living Mountain

The Living Mountain is an evocative, uplifting and compelling audio-visual performance inspired by the celebrated book of the same name, written by Aberdonian Nan Shepherd in the 1940s and still hugely relevant today.

Devised and performed by musician Jenny Sturgeon, The Living Mountain considers human connections with wild places through lyrical and melodic interpretation of the novel, and interweaves song with visuals from the Cairngorm Mountains National Park; filmed by videographer Robyn Spice, rewilding advocacy group Scotland The Big Picture and with archive imagery from the National Library of Scotland.

The meditative qualities of the combined audio and imagery provide a soothing and poignant exploration of what it means to connect with a landscape, and to find a sense of place. It marks a bold and significant step in Jenny Sturgeon’s development as one of Scotland’s finest singer-songwriters.

Sturgeon’s songcraft is at the centre of her engaging and honest performance. She accompanies her lyrics with a specially built guitar ‘The Nan Taran’ (made entirely from reclaimed Scottish wood and built by Rory Dowling of Taran Guitars), piano, shruti box and dulcimer and with her own field recordings from within the Cairngorms.

Sturgeon is “a wonderful singer who can change the atmosphere in the room with her affecting delivery” (Boo Hewerdine).

Music – Jenny Sturgeon

Film projection – Shona Thomson

Featuring field recordings by Jenny Sturgeon, Jez Riley-French and Magnus Robb, and footage of the Cairngorms by Robyn Spice and Scotland: The Big Picture.
