Meet the Flint & Pitch team
Director, Programmer, compere.
Jenny Lindsay has been writing, performing, programming and promoting spoken word in various ways since 2002. As both a performer and writer as well as a programmer, Jenny has been widely credited with championing spoken word artists in Scotland over the last 16 years, providing many acts with their first experience of professional platforms, popularising the art-form through a dedication to booking excellent acts in new spaces and, alongside Rachel McCrum with Rally & Broad (2012 – 2016), “providing a beacon of brilliance on the live lit scene.” (The List). Though spoken word is Jenny’s primary passion, she has a keen eye on the emerging music scene in Scotland and enjoys bringing multiple art-forms together under one roof in any event she programmes.
