On the heels of a largely sold out UK tour promoting her debut album Namer of Clouds, local songwriter and guitarist Kitty Macfarlane comes home to Somerset to perform at this very special event hosted by Somerset Wildlife Trust, to raise awareness of the importance of the local wildlife and wild lands that gave her the imagery for her writing.

As well as playing songs from her new album, Kitty will share with the audience the inspiration for her folk music, including the starling murmurations on the Somerset Levels and the lowly eel’s epic transatlantic migration. Many sounds which were recorded just down the road from the theatre in secret places on the Trust’s Avalon Marshes reserves.

Kitty was voted Female Artist of the Year 2018 by FATEA, nominated for Album Of The Year in the fRoots Critics Poll and, her debut ‘Namer Of Clouds’ album released last year was included in The Guardian's Best Folk Albums of 2018:

“Her remarkably accomplished debut album, Namer Of Clouds, beguiles with its poetry and tenderness, and her eye for detail, vivid imagination and bright vocals make it a captivating listen. She is a talent to watch” The Guardian

Kitty will be signing her albums which will be on sale after the show and, all profits from this fundraising event will go towards the work of Somerset Wildlife Trust, protecting and safeguarding the wildlife and wild places of Somerset for everyone to enjoy.
