20 Sep 2019 8pm
This celebrated virtuoso partnership of “the doyenne of Irish harpers” (SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY), has brought its special musical vision to venues large and small. Their performances are a breath taking blend of traditional Irish music, hot jazz, bluegrass and baroque, coupled with striking new compositions and Chris’s delightfully subversive wit.
Kitty Macfarlane is a songwriter and guitarist from Somerset, whose music is rich with visual imagery and written with an eco-eye. Kitty’s highly anticipated debut album 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.
Otley Courthouse Bar opens 45 minutes before the event start time.
Please check times with event organiser for any last minute changes.
The Courthouse is fully accessible, with lift access to the first floor.
