June 08/06/18     Jenny Sturgeon with Jonny Hardie & Charlie McKerron.

8.00 - 10.00pm doors open at 7.30pm - 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 into all her work. Jenny plays in a trio with Jonny Hardie (Old Blind Dogs) and Charlie McKerron (Capercaillie ). Hailing from the north-east of Scotland, Jenny Sturgeon is a hugely talented singer-songwriter who has been winning fans wherever she goes. Her passion for music lies in her interest in the traditional folk song, combined with the enjoyment of creating fresh, new compositions. Inspired by folklore, historical events and observations of modern society, Jenny is also a biologist and her enthusiasm for nature creeps into all her work. Jenny was recently commissioned by the National Trust for Scotland to compose new songs and tunes inspired by St Kilda to mark the archipelago’s 30th anniversary as a World Heritage Site. The resulting work, The Wren and the Salt Air, was described as ‘A genuinely inspiring work’ by RnR magazine.
