Saturday 19 June at 6.30pm and 9pm
Kitty Macfarlane is a songwriter and guitarist from Somerset whose music is rich with visual imagery and written with an eco-eye. Her trademark lies in remarkably mature songwriting, a marked empathy with the environment and a strong sense of place. Carried by a clear voice that is ‘controlled yet wild’ (Folk Radio), her lyrics touch on intervention and rewilding, climate change and migration, woman’s age-old relationship with textiles and the land, and the changing face of the natural world.
From the starling murmurations on the Somerset Levels to the lowly eel’s epic trans-Atlantic migration, the coasts and estuaries of the South West and the small part we ourselves play in a much bigger picture, her songs are bound by the underlying theme of mankind’s relationship with the wild. Cerebral and topical, honest and immediate, these are not throwaway lyrics or everyday melodies but thought-provoking and evocative compositions with wonderfully crafted soundscapes.

“Wow, what a voice”. This is the most frequent comment we get whenever Kitty has performed at The David Hall. Last with us in March 2019, Kitty is a stunning performer and is one of my main tips for future stardom.
