KITTY MACFARLANE

Kitty Macfarlane is a Somerset-based singer and songwriter.

Her lyrics combine honest snapshots of everyday humanity with the bigger questions that have connected minds and voices for centuries, driven by her own fingerpicked guitar. As well as the release of her debut EP 'Tide & Time' - featuring Sam Kelly (co-producer), Jamie Francis, Lukas Drinkwater, Maya McCourt and Ciaran Algar, and gaining her first national airplay on the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe, and Tom Robinson's show on BBC 6Music - 2016 has seen Kitty complete an extensive national support tour with award-winning duo Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman.

This autumn sees the release of Kitty's highly anticipated debut album, produced by Sam Kelly and featuring a recognisable cast of musicians. A collection of original and traditional songs threaded together by the theme of mankind's relationship with the wild, tackling issues of rewilding, climate change, and migration, as well as woman's historical relationship with textiles and the land. As many of the songs have a firm sense of place (mostly in Somerset where she grew up) field recordings taken at locations mentioned in the songs form a soundscape that weaves in and out throughout. Kitty will be touring this album in the autumn of 2018 and is currently taking bookings.

"This young Somerset-based singer-songwriter's blessed with a strong identity: a confident singing voice and a compelling writing style deriving inspiration from growing up in the south-west, allied to a talent for finding wider significance in everyday experiences. An outstanding debut"​- fRoots Magazine
