Ceili AllStars & Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer

Featuring Lisa O'Sullivan (fiddle), Eoin Stan O' Sullivan (fiddle), Mike Tosh O' Sullivan (banjo), Flor Rahilly (guitar).
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, Bedworth Folk Club)
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.
The duo has toured its shows extensively in most corners of the UK including the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, but also in New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Ireland, wooing audiences with Karen’s southern German accent tinged with an ‘oatcake induced’ North Staffordshire dialect from Paul’s heritage.
