Poetry Meets Highland Pop

A New Year’s Eve concert at the Kongresowa Hall promises a tantalizing mix of funked-up folk tunes from the Polish mountains and the poetic power of one of the country’s most respected singer-songwriters.

The concert will see well-known pop-folk band Zakopower joining forces with Grzegorz Turnau.

An arranger, pianist, composer, vocalist and poet, Turnau has won acclaim for his compositions and for his performing style, which sometimes borders on jazz and smooth jazz. The hallmark of most of his concerts is a grand piano that he plays himself.

The Zakopower band was formed by fiddle player Sebastian Karpiel-Bułecka, who wowed audiences with a successful combination of the music of Polish highlanders with modern beats and a rocky edge.

Turnau and Karpiel-Bułecka met at the beginning of this year while working on a project called Po drodze (On the Way), which premiered in April and was well received by both the public and critics.

Working together, the two performers discovered they shared many musical interests, which led to new arrangements of familiar tracks. Turnau and Zakopower will perform these on New Year’s Eve together with a chamber orchestra made up of young Polish musicians.
