22nd June, 23rd June
Dedicated to the honour of Kazimierz ‘Kazik’ Piechowski, a Polish scout who in June 1942 escaped from Auchwitz concentration camp in a Steyrr 220 car.
Expect an intimate evening of live, multi-media music and film show of Katy Carr’s highly acclaimed, music compositions themed on the era of 1940s as well as some golden oldies, and song hits from the era of the 1940s from both Britain and Poland.
The first half of the evening includes a film screening of ‘Kazik and The Kommander’s Car,’ a 25 minute documentary about the true story of Polish boy scout, Kazimierz Piechowski, who made a daring escape from Auschwitz in 1942. Directed by Hannah Lovell and produced by Katy Carr. Katy Carr’s song about the escape provides the soundtrack for parts of the film.
The second half features music from Katy’s album ‘Coquette’ and further 1940s songs in English and Polish.
