  • Katy Carr's April 2011 Newsletter

    Hello from Katy Carr!

    April has been an incredible month with regards various musical and historical matters….Kazimierz Piechowski’s first visit to the UK proved to be a mammoth success. The British media whipped up a storm and we were featured in various papers such as The Guardian, Evening Standard, The Sunday Express, The Times as well as Radio 4’s Today program. So thanks to all of you who helped in the event preparations and for your attendance. We will be posting up video blogs and written blogs in the near future. In addition and partly inspired by this month of events i am currently putting together a book called ‘Kazik Kollectif’ with responses from 20 artists from all disciplines, poets, writers, musicians, photographers, artists with regards Kazik’s story. This will be published next year in 2012.

    I am also currently doing two tours -‘ The Escapologist Tour’ funded by Arts Council England and the support to the Great British Barbershop Boys UK tour. Details of shows are below or here at this link

    You can also listen to my album ‘Coquette,’ which is currently on British Airways inflight entertainment, Channel 15 Easy Listening

    Katy Carr's latest Newsletter – Oct / Nov 2010

    Katy Carr’s Newsletter  Oct/ Nov 2010

    Hello from Katy Carr
    Firstly thankyou to Poland and to all my Polish friends for making my research trip and concerts in the early part of October so very enjoyable between 1st and 12th October. I spent some days in Warsaw with my album artist designer Susan Burghart. We visited many places of interest and took lots of photos. Susan has a good idea of what I want my next album artwork to look like and I am very excited and pleased.
    From Warsaw I was then driven to Bialowieza to my friend Olimpia’s house and was again very well fed and looked after. We ventured into the Białowieża Forest (National Park; Polish: Białowieski Park Narodowy) in Podlaskie Voivodship in Poland at the border with Belarus. This Park is on the UNESCO World Heritage List so it is a very special environmental area. We glimpsed bison grazing, wild boar, many varieties of mushrooms and also the footprints of wolves.

    Katy Carr’s Newsletter Sept / Oct 2010

    Hello from Katy Carr –

    Summer has ended and autumn is upon us. Golden leaves, shorter days and of course more rainier moments here in London Town. People sigh as they need to wear jumpers and warm coats and carry umbrellas everywhere…. Some of us have suffered from ‘change of the weather’ fluey type affairs with sore throats and coughing and spluttering fits a sure reminder that winter is nigh!
    I have loved September 2010 and all the wonderful people I have met at my gigs …
  • Katy Carr's Newsletter Aug /Sept 2010

    Hello from Katy Carr

    Summer, summer, summer —- stay with us a little bit longer!!!! > just looking outside onto the streets of Marylebone this morning at 8am and yes it looks like London in November again — grey sky, rain pouring down, people rushing in and out of shop doorways and hailing taxis for fear of getting their clothes drenched in sudden downpours. It is beautiful in terms of poetry to see raindrops falling like glistening pennies to the ground but we rain sufficient Britons love and want more of the glorious summer sunshine please……
  • Katy Carr's Newsletter July /Aug 2010

    Hello from Katy Carr – July 2010 has been a GREAT GREAT month and I have met lots of very lovely people on this side of the Atlantic and across the water…  North Carolina and Georgia and the southern States of America embraced me with open arms at the beginning of the month and I very much welcome another trip there. The people I met were fantastic as well as the learning I gained about the land and the struggles many endured in previous times.
