Katy Carr’s Aug/ Sept 2013 Newsletter  

Just a quick hello to all my lovely music supporters in Europe and now to my new friends in Canada and USA. August has been a wonderful month full of incredible Katy Carr music happenings and I have been so blessed to meet so many incredible people 🙂 Earlier in August I was very kindly invited by the organisers of the Connecticut and Montreal Quo Vadis, Polish Heritage in USA conferences to attend and perform my music. I have been so moved to meet so many innovative and dedicated individuals of all ages who are on a mission to preserve Polish heritage in their communities across both the USA and Canada and so proud to have Polish roots. It was inspiring! I found such incredible companionship and amazing new souls to bounce ideas from and I hope to share more on this topic with you very soon 🙂 It is very exciting to take part in the beginning stages of a -Pro -Poland -Polonia – culture explosion and expect more information on this will follow. I will be starting up my regular blog posts on the subject soooon!!!

Below are some pics of the great people that I met …

The wonderful Janusz Skowron and the  Polish Club Amber in Williamsburg, NYC!

Katy Carr says a massive thank you to Janusz Skowron for inviting me to his initiative ‘Club Amber’ – a meeting hub for the Polish senior citizen community in New York City – In my opinion Janusz deserves to receive a medal from the Polish Government for all the wonderful work he is doing for the Polish Community in New York City x x x 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=8Y6EG7Y446g#t=39

Katy Carr’s music Quotes :


– ‘Carr is a fine example of that much-maligned beast we call Authenticity…’ 
– ‘never less than immaculate’ Sunday Times Culture Magazine
– ‘Concept album of the Year’ The Guardian
– ‘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.’ 
Katy Carr’s Awards :
In January 2013 Katy Carr received the Award for Culture from The Polish Daily – Dziennik Polski as part of the prestigious Dziennik Polski (United Kingdom) People of the Year Awards for her efforts in connecting both British and Polish communities together through her musical performances, film screenings and outreach work to both the young and the elderly in Great Britain.
