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 http://katycarr.com/live-shows/


You can also listen to my album ‘Coquette,’ which is currently on British Airways inflight entertainment, Channel 15 Easy Listening http://www.britishairways.com/travel/ifeaudio/public/en_gb
