Kitty Macfarlane

Kitty Macfarlane at Bristol Folk Festival

Kitty Macfarlane is a songwriter and guitarist from Somerset, whose music is rich with visual imagery.

From the starling murmurations of the Somerset Levels to the lowly eel’s epic transatlantic migration, 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, Kitty offers us thought-provoking and evocative compositions with wonderfully crafted soundscapes.

Her debut Namer Of Clouds was one of The Guardian’s Best Folk Albums of 2018, and has been played BBC Radio 2, 3, 4 and 6 Music. Last year she was invited to guest-present two episodes of BBC Radio 4’s Tweet of the Day and Kitty performed live in session on BBC Radio 2 at the beginning of 2019.


“Macfarlane’s vocal style is easy, tuneful and ‘in the tradition’… but what sets her work apart is her affinity with the natural world and some startlingly poetic lyrics… DelightfulThe Observer


Jack Rutter

Jack Rutter is a highly respected folk singer and multi-instrumentalist from West Yorkshire. His masterful playing and arrangements on guitar, bouzouki, duet concertina and harmonium provide the perfect accompaniment for his soaring vocals.

“In the spirit of the old traditional singers, Jack Rutter takes a song, shapes it, lives with it and brings out something unique. This album makes my heart sing.” Kathryn Tickell OBE, BBC Radio 3
