'The Living Mountain' is the second solo album from songwriter Jenny Sturgeon (singer and multi-instrumentalist in Salt House and Northern Flyway), recorded and produced by Andy Bell at Clashnettie Arts Centre in the Cairngorms National Park. 'The Living Mountain' was inspired by Nan Shepherds book 'The Living Mountain' and Jennys experience growing up near, and walking in, the Cairngorms. In the album, Jenny explores her own connection to this highland area as well as delving into Nans philosophy of being in the mountains and peoples connection to the wild. The twelve songs take inspiration from the chapter titles of Nans book; the lyrics tell of exploration, love, loss and wonder at the natural world from small scale mosses and moths to the wider landscape and ecosystem.
