“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 southwest, allied to a talent for finding wider significance in everyday experiences. An outstanding debut” – fRoots Magazine
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.
Currently she is an Associate Artist at Halsway Manor, National Centre for Folk Arts, and has recently been awarded a creative bursary from the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) for a songwriting project. Kitty’s songs are charged with a sense of place – more often than not her home of Somerset. Mankind’s transactions with the planet, whether those of small French fishing communities, or colossal nuclear power stations, work their way into her songs, alongside a deep interest in shared human experience
