Warsztat muzyczno-historyczny z Katy Carr – cóż za głos! Kochani, dziękujemy za waszą obecność i udział, a Katy za fenomenalną lekcję historii w pięknym wykonaniu! ❤️ (Music and history workshop with Katy Carr – what a voice! Dear friends, thank you for your presence and participation, and Katy for a phenomenal history lesson and a beautiful performance! )
Below the Polish Saturday School in Leeds are watching my music video for Wojtek the Soldier Bear before we learn together the song and the history behind the legend – watch video here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1uEn7dvne8
Thank you to the wonderful teachers of the Polish Saturday School in Maidstone (photo taken whilst the students watch my music video)
Thank you to all the students for bringing their Wojtek the Bears or equivalent !
Every student is encouraged to participate in my workshops as having a voice is so important.
I always ask the students to thank & cheer the teachers who do such a fantastic job working for the community 🙂
Thanks you to Marcin, Małgosia i Amy Tomala a beautiful Polish family based in Maidstone who are huge fans of my music. My workshops bring me closer to my fans who want their children to learn the history of Poland through my music to help them become more confident about their roots.
Below I am showing the location of the Polish cemetery at Monte Cassino in Italy to the students in preparation for singing the song Czerwone Maki na Monte Cassino … (The Red Poppies on Monte Cassino ). I use photos and videos as visual stimulus for the students as well as singing. I love working with #PolishSaturdaySchool teachers. I’m continually saddened that so many Polish students don’t know basic facts about their history in #Poland and here in #UK #historymatters
Thank you so much to Renata Bednarska (pictured left) for booking me to perform and Teresa Hough (pictured right) the Director of the Polish Saturday School in Leeds who hosted me when I was there. Lovely Polish ladies !
With Renata’s lovely family at the Corn Exchange in Leeds – I love travelling to meet my beautiful community and they always look after me and take me to some amazing places ! I love my Polish global family – what a joy to be with you all x
