**Accessibility: the venue is accessed via a flight of stairs\nKITTY MACFARLANE\nKitty Macfarlane is a Somerset-based singer and songwriter. \nHer lyrics combine honest snapshots of everyday humanity with the bigger questions that have connected minds and voices for centuries, driven by her own fingerpicked guitar. As well as the release of her debut EP 'Tide & Time' - featuring Sam Kelly (co-producer), Jamie Francis, Lukas Drinkwater, Maya McCourt and Ciaran Algar - and gaining her first national airplay on the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe, and Tom Robinson's show on BBC 6Music, 2016 has seen Kitty complete an extensive national support tour with award-winning duo Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman. \nOther highlights range from support sets for Seth Lakeman, Alasdair Roberts, Rachel Sermanni, Blair Dunlop, and Feast of Fiddles, to appearing as a theme-tune on Radio 4, being a featured artist for a BBC Introducing documentary, and making the semi-final of the BBC Young Folk Award in 2015. Kitty has also recently been awarded a creative bursary from the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) for a songwriting project of her own devising. \n"This young Somerset-based singer-songwriter's blessed with a strong identity: a confident singing voice and a compelling writing style deriving inspiration from growing up in the south-west, allied to a talent for finding wider significance in everyday experiences. An outstanding debut" - fRoots Magazine \nLINKS\nwww.kittymacfarlane.com \nwww.facebook.com/kittymacfarlane\nwww.twitter.com/kittymacfarlane\nWith Support From...\nLUCY GRUBB\nWith heartfelt lyrics and Country undertones, Lucy focuses on telling you the unadulterated truth about a girl who was born and raised in a town not built for Country music.\nInspired by the likes of Johnny Cash, Lucy's understated guitar rhythms and Country trilled vocal melodies hark back to tried and tested traditional Country song writing, expressing grief, sorrow and heartbreak. Although lacking life experience, Lucy takes her own emotional turmoil and communicates it through gripping lyrical content and storytelling. One cannot help but wonder where some of those lyrics are coming from, she's obviously another 'old soul' with a huge talent for expressive songwriting. - Richard Shashamane\nWith nods to songwriter Paul Simon, Lucy focuses on writing about the truth in a way that sets her apart from other songwriters. Like Simon, Lucy often likes to add a spin to the tone of her lyrics, sometimes witty or sarcastic to enhance the storytelling experience. Ultimately what makes her songs stand out is the ability to take them and create meaning unique to the individual.\nIn 2014 Lucy made her debut appearance on BBC Introducing in Norfolk, followed by a performance at Open for BBC Radio 1's Academy in conjunction with BBC Introducing in 2016. Later that year, Lucy supported folk singer/songwriter Lucy Rose at Norwich Arts Centre for Norwich Sound & Vision and formed her band Lucy Grubb & The Lost Boys.\nAfter a great start to 2017 supporting her fellow Country peers Morganway and Sam Coe & the Long Shadows, Lucy went on to play a host of UK festivals including Glastonbury, Red Rooster and Latitude.\nAccompanied by a sold out show in Norwich, Lucy released her debut EP '18 Miles' in November 2017, winning 'Best UK EP of the Year' and being named 'One to Watch' by Belles and Gals. "Listening to Lucy, you really get the feeling that this is an artist who is doing it her way it's country, with a touch of folk, without ever feeling the need to conform 100% to either." - Nick Cantwell\nIn April 2018 Lucy won 'The Bury Songwriter's Competition 2018' for her track '18 Miles' and released a Music Video.\nLucy has set her sights on breaking into the Country/Americana scene, recording her next record for Summer 2018 and heading to Nashville 'in the near distant future'.\nwww.facebook.com/LucyGrubbMusic\nwww.artists.nme.com/artist/lucy-grubb\nwww.youtube.com/watch?v=u5O-gVdStlE
