Kitty Macfarlane is a songwriter and guitarist whose music is rich with visual imagery and written with an eco-eye. Carried by a voice 'as clear as a mountain stream', her lyrics touch on intervention and rewilding, climate change and migration, and woman’s historical relationship with textiles and the land. Her music is augmented by all kinds of ‘found sound’ recorded in locations from Somerset to Sardinia – birdsong, waterfalls, the click of knitting needles - and bookended by sounds of the wild.
Kitty is a rising star on the folk scene. Her debut album Namer of Clouds was produced by Sam Kelly and Jacob J Stoney and was one of The Guardian's Best Folk Albums of 2018 with airplay across BBC Radio 2, 3, 4 and 6 Music. She has performed a live session on BBC Radio 2 and as a bird enthusiast has also been guest-presenter of Radio 4's Tweet of the Day.
In 2019 Kitty was nominated for the Horizon Award in the 2019 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
We are delighted to welcome her to The Spring for a socially distanced gig.
