Katy Carr is set to play East Cowes Town Hall as part of the ORP Blyskawica commemorations on Friday 6th May.
The British singer/songwriter with Polish roots is a superb fit for the 80th anniversary of the night that the Polish Navy destroyer defended Cowes from Nazi bombers. Her recent trilogy of albums Paszport (2012), Polonia (2015), and Providence (2020) has been inspired by the WW2 Polish experience.
A musician, aviator, and multi-instrumentalist (piano, ukulele, banjolele and vintage keyboardist), Katy has released a total of 6 albums. She has performed her music internationally with live concerts and tours, intergenerational workshops through the UK, Poland, France, Belgium, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Germany, USA, Mexico, and Canada as well as connecting with her audiences via live streaming during the 2020/21 pandemic. In 2016, Katy was awarded the Pro Patria medal by Poland for her humanitarian and musical work. Her appearance is supported by the Polish Cultural Institute in London.
Katy will be supported by the Medina Marching Band. The local youth outfit will perform their range of music from stage shows, military marches, and pop tunes.
Tickets are available online from ticketsource.co.uk and 50% of proceeds will go to helping Ukranian refugees.
Katy Carr and the Medina Marching Band, East Cowes Town Hall – Friday 6th May at 19:30.
