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. As well as the release of her debut EP Tide & Time, 2016 took Kitty on an extensive national support tour with Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman . Tide & Time received outstanding reviews and national airplay on the BBC Radio 2 folk show as well as other regional BBC radio shows across the UK, and features Sam Kelly (co-producer), Jamie Francis, Lukas Drinkwater, Ciaran Algar and others. Kitty was a BBC Young Folk Award semi-finalist in 2015. 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. Kitt';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.
