Katy Carr performs in concert following a showing of the short documentary Kazik and The Kommander’s Car as part of ICIA’s 2012 theme; Internationalism. Carr was a nominee for The London Music Award 2012, along with figures such as Kate Bush, PJ Harvey, Arctic Monkeys and Metronomy amongst others, and her Escapologist Tour is nominated for The National Lottery Awards.
Katy is a London-based performer and songwriter who sings, plays a vintage wurlitzer electronic piano, ukulele and banjolele with her group ‘The Aviators’.
Marking the 1939 Soviet invasion of Poland, Carr releases her fourth album entitled Paszport this September. Katy will perform songs from the new collection, inspired by stories gathered by Katy from World War Two veterans in Poland, from military personnel through to members of the non-military resistance covering Polish people who fought in the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, and Polish survivors of both German Nazi labour and concentration camps and Soviet detention camps in Siberia.
Kazik and The Kommander’s Car
Prior to the concert, you are invited to a screening of Kazik and The Kommander’s Car, a 25 minute documentary about a Polish boy scout, Kazimierz Piechowski, who made a daring escape from Auschwitz in 1942. Katy Carr’s song about the escape provides the soundtrack for parts of the film. The evening will include a question and answer session.
‘...original and lovely.’ ★★★★ 4/5 Mojo
