Katy Carr’s musical journey through the 1940’s is far removed from any mere fashion statement as seen from her Songlines Magazine nomination of Best Artist of 2013 and the critical acclaim of her new album.

While her 2009 album Coquette channelled the spirit and glamour of such World War II-era icons as Gracie Fields, Ginger Rogers and Vera Lynn into edgy alt-folk songwriting, alongside reworked period classics, Carr’s new release Paszport, inspired by meeting an escapee from Auschwitz – one of only 144 in the camp’s entire grim history – reconnects with her own Polish roots via his and other veterans’ stories.

Her performance incorporates specially-created short films and visual projections, reflecting the narrative behind the songs.

Part of the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival.

Supported by the Consulate of the Republic of Poland in Edinburgh.
