Come join us for some tea after the craziness of the main stage and listen to the following performers in the Small Courtyard.
Tuesday July 9
Dvornik R’M’B Trio
The band is made up of Mateusz Dwornik on string bass, percussionist Mateusz Maniak and pianist Bartek Ziętara. Their repertoire consists of original compositions by Dvornik which were inspired by modern jazz and firmly rooted in jazz trends in hip hop. Their arrangements are influenced by a wide variety of artists and styles ranging from Led Zeppelin to gospel. Dvornik comes from a Pentecostal family so that comes naturally to him. Szymon Chudy, who is well known with audiences, will join the band on guitar in Lubiaz.
Wednesday July 10
Michał Król, a 22 year old artist, is making his solo debut tonight. He is already well known as a song-writer and member of the group Zdobywcy and his songs are sung in many fellowships around Poland. He?s a graduate of the Hillsong International Leadership College in Australia where he studied worship music. The power of his songs come from the texts which flow from his heart and are a cry to the Savior as well as the simple melodies that quickly stay in your head.
Thursday July 11
