Katy Carr and the Aviators – NEWS – April / May 2012
In April Katy Carr went on tour to the U.S.A. and performed to audiences in New York City, Connecticut, New Britain, Chicago and in South Georgia. The focal point of these concerts was to establish a link with Polonia – the Polish communities in the USA and share stories of WW2 Poland through song and film screenings of ‘Kazik and the Kommander’s Car,’ which KC released earlier this year as a commemorative gesture to the 70th Anniversary of Polish boy scout, Kazik Piechowski’s remarkable escape from Auschwitz concentration camp on June 20th 1942.
Katy Carr was very kindly received in the States and would like to express huge gratitude to all the hosts, venues, journalists and radio shows who helped to publicise and promote the tour. Here are a few links to media features to share with you:

During May 2012 Katy Carr and the Aviators have had fun supporting Poland’s splendid folk pop group Zakopower on their UK tour as well as playing for the Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council at a special event dedicated to those people who raise money for the Royal British Legion.

– ‘Carr is a fine example of that much-maligned beast we call Authenticity…’
– ‘Her idiosyncrasy as a musician meant she’d have to forge ahead under her own steam – even the most avowedly avant labels fight shy of butterflies they can’t easily net… ‘
– ‘She’s a true original, standing out like the spark generated by a Swan Vesta applied to a cigarette in the Blackout.’
