‘PolinArts and the Outsiders’-coming to finish

Today, I interviewed the last member of the ‘PolinArtists’ family: Katy Carr. Katy is a very unique artist: Polish born- BUT British raised- British at heart -BUT reconnected with Polish roots- a singer and songwriter. Most of all, like many of us, she is a proud Outsider, like many of us.


Katy is a modern bart. She is fascinated with individual stories from the World War 2 from both sides, Polish and British and uses her music to share them.

Katy is a very unique artist and definitely worth listening to. Below one of my favourite song of hers: ‘Mala, Little Flower’:
