Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer

Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer

With “two grand voices – individually and in harmony” (Folker-German Folk Magazine), the Anglo-German duo Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer offer a versatile miscellany of self-penned and imaginatively arranged songs, delivered with guitar, woodwind instrumentation and occasional percussion. “I’ve never seen our audience so spellbound!” (Malc Gurnham, Folk Club promoter) So, what is it that makes this internationally touring pair so irresistible? Whilst Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer are acclaimed for their image provoking songwriting, expressive vocals and authentic musicianship, they are frequently recalled for their warmth, humour and their remarkable ability to engage with their audience. Karen’s natural theatricality and life affirming playful energy compliment charmingly with Paul’s calm geniality and combined they magically turn a great performance into a real event. In brief: enchanting, entertaining, uplifting. “Great show!” (Graham Norton) Based in Staffordshire in the UK, the duo has toured its shows extensively taking in New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Ireland and most corners of the UK, wooing audiences with Karen’s southern German accent tinged with an ‘oatcake induced’ North Staffordshire dialect from Paul’s heritage. Their latest show ‘Auf Wiedersehen, Me Duck’ was a huge success at the 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the feedback, also to the accompanying album, was wonderful: "Beautifully written songs" "Leaves audiences mesmerised" (Edinburgh Fringe). The pandemic has seen them focusing their attention on writing, recording and developing their online presence. Their live stream ‘Afternoon Tea with Paul & Karen’ is now in excess of 100 shows and still attracts a dedicated international following. The new album ‘Auf Wiedersehen, Me Duck’ was released in May 2022 and received a great amount of radio play, video attention and glowing reviews: "Eclectic, performed with passion and with excellent musicianship." Folk & Honey "Charming, varied and fun" Irish Music Magazine Overall, “A first-class experience.” (Bietigheimer Zeitung) www.paulwalkermusic.co.uk
