A singer, songwriter and guitarist, whose debut album was praised by the Guardian for its beguiling poetry and tenderness, will be at Seaford’s Little Theatre on Friday, November 22 (7.30pm).

Kitty Macfarlane and her band’s Namer of Clouds album takes inspiration from the sky to the seabed. Her lyrics touch on intervention and rewilding, as well as climate change, migration and woman’s historical relationship with textiles and the land.

Kitty’s live show will be augmented by ‘found sounds’ recorded in locations from her home county of Somerset to Sardinia, including that of birdsong, waterfalls, clicking knitting needles and the wild.

As a bird enthusiast, Kitty was invited to guest-present several episodes of Radio 4’s Tweet of the Day last year. She also performed a live session on BBC Radio 2 in January this year.

Since releasing her debut EP, Tide & Time, back in 2016, and subsequently touring as support for Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman, Blair Dunlop and Elephant Sessions, Kitty has received project funding from the English Folk Dance and Song Society, and more recently the Lynsey de Paul Prize for female songwriters.

The gig at the Little Theatre looks like it will be another sell-out show for presenters Seaford Sessions.
