Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer

So, what is it that makes this internationally touring duo so irresistible? Could it be Karen’s German accent tinged with an oatcake-induced North Staffordshire dialect? Or Paul’s besotted gaze whenever she takes to the microphone? Or is it simply the exquisitely performed music and the happy, warm feeling everyone seems to get at their shows…

With their unique onstage-chemistry and their widely praised harmonies, the Anglo-German duo Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer entertain and engage their audiences “in a likable, humorous style”. Combining their own beautifully written songs with a fine choice of folk favourites, Paul’s vocal and individual guitar style blended with Karen’s voice, clear and yet so powerful, leaves audiences mesmerised:

“I have never seen our audience so spellbound!” exclaimed a promoter recently. Karen adds with alto and tenor recorders, Irish flute and whistle - and not to mention the odd German ‘joke’ - to this fantastically entertaining night.

A memorable evening of great music and fun awaits. Definitely a night not to be missed!
