About Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer
“With two grand voices – individually and in harmony” (Folker-German Folk Magazine), 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, Bedworth Folk Club)
So, what is it that makes this internationally touring Anglo-German duo 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 compliments charmingly with Paul’s calm geniality and combined they magically turn a great performance into a real event.
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.
Poised to record a new album in Germany just when the pandemic halted things, the past 18 months have seen them focusing their attention on writing, home recording and most importantly, developing their online presence. Their weekly live stream ‘Afternoon Tea with Paul & Karen’ is now in excess of 85 shows and attracts a dedicated international following. The new album is now set to be released early 2022.
