2pm today – Katy Carr is very excited to be playing in Liverpool today at the Great Hall St George’s Hall:
St Georges Place
Merseyside Polonia will be celebrating Polish Independence Day at St George’s Hall at 2pm on Saturday the 17th of November with the performance from this year’s London Music Award nominee, Katy Carr.
It is a great opportunity for Liverpool music scene to enjoy Katy’s themed album and allow Merseyside audience to be moved back in time. The folk inspired lyricist and song writer’s great fascination comes from a period of Second World War, time of great struggle and fight for independence of Poland.
The London-based artist is well acquainted with the Polish audience as she herself has Polish roots. The encounter with the eastern European history has started during her holiday on the edge of the Beskidy Mountains in southern Poland. She met Kazik, the last Auschwitz’s prisoner who managed to escape from the concentration camp and whose story inspired her to weave it into a song.
The breathy quality of Katy’s songs relating to love, death and freedom in the Second World War will be accompanied by the Polish community guests happy to share their personal and fascinating experiences of the past times.
Fighting for freedom is an inseparable part of Polish history. Independence Day is an optimistic celebration where local Polish community would like to thanks the ones who helped shaping today’s Poland.
The performance is free, the experience is priceless.
Come and join Merseyside Polonia and embrace Polish culture with a British musical twist – all welcome.
