Following their sell-out concert here at the MET in 2017 it is a great pleasure to be able to welcome back this highly popular duo prior to them jetting off for their tour of New Zealand and Australia.
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 mesmerized:
“I have never seen our audience so spell-bound!” 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, fun and laughter awaits. Definitely a night not to be missed!
Performing Saturday 16th March 2019. 8pm All tickets £10.50 In the MET Studio at Stafford Gatehouse Theatre
About Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer
The Anglo-German duo Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer hails from Maer just outside of Stone, although Karen is originally from Stuttgart, Germany, where Paul ‘discovered’ her busking in a city centre park. He invited her to perform in England and the two of them have now been playing music together since 2012. In the last two years they have spread their wings very successfully into the British and European folk and festival scene and perform now mainly in Theatres, Village Halls, Folk Clubs and of course at Festivals throughout the UK. In addition they tour annually in southern Ireland and Germany – and in 2019 they are embarking on their first tour of New Zealand and Western Australia.
Together with their own beautifully written songs which have begun to gain well-deserved attention, they present unique interpretations of classics from folk icons such as Richard Thompson, Dougie MacLean, Jimmy MacCarthy or Christy Moore. Altogether, “songs with groove and goosebumps guaranteed”, as the Stuttgart press put it recently.
Sharing vocal duties, both have their individual styles which combine beautifully and, together with their light-hearted banter, they provide a truly memorable experience.
Their CDs ‘One by One’ (2013), ‘Marble Town’ (2015) and ‘The Whole Charade’ (2018) have received glowing reviews in folk and music industry magazines (e.g. Acoustic Magazine, Folk North West, The Living Tradition, Stirrings Magazine, Folker, Folk Monthly). Especially the latest album ‘The Whole Charade’ has also been enjoying considerable airplay in Europe, the U.S and Australia.
