Jenny Sturgeon Trio

Jenny Sturgeon Trio

"Jenny Sturgeon is a singer-songwriter who brings together the old and new with a rare skill" - RnR Magazine.

The inspiration for Jenny's lyrics comes from folklore, historical events and personal experience, and having trained as a biologist her enthusiasm for nature creeps in to all her work. Jenny plays in a trio with Jonny Hardie (Old Blind Dogs) and Charlie McKerron (Capercaillie, Session A9), and with Lauren MacColl and Ewan MacPherson in the critically acclaimed band Salt House. In addition to touring, Jenny is involved in several projects including working as a songwriting workshop tutor and collaborating with Aberdeen based artist and fabric designer Helen Ruth. 2018 heralds an exciting new collaborative music project Northern Flyway with Inge Thomson (Da Fishin Hands, Karine Polwart, Urban Farm Hand). Northern Flyway is a large scale 75 minute music and visual production inspired by birds which will be touring the UK in 2018.

"Scot Jenny Sturgeon is as close to an organic folksinger/songwriter as you can get. She absorbs the culture, essence, stories and legends of her native region and manufactures them into inspired songs and tunes which reflect much of the natural world around her." - Folk All

"A superb album - I love every track" - Mike Harding talking about 'From the Skein'

"The magical quality of Jenny’s voice gives tangible feeling to the songs, the haunting lyrics range from the darker sides of folklore and legend through historical narrative to observing the human condition, the dreamlike, expressive and lingering melodies – together the combination creates a whole that holds you in its embrace..." - FolkWords
