Kitty Macfarlane’s highly anticipated debut album Namer Of Clouds was released September 2018 to national acclaim. Join Kitty with her band for an extra special album launch party on 13th November.

Kitty Macfarlane is a songwriter from Somerset, whose music is rich with visual imagery and written with an eco-eye. From the starling murmurations on 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. Produced by Sam Kelly and Jacob J Stoney, Namer Of Clouds gathers inspiration from the sky to the seabed. Carried by a voice ‘as clear as a mountain stream’ (FRUK), her lyrics touch on intervention and rewilding, climate change and migration, and woman’s historical relationship with textiles and the land.
