Aufweidersehen Me Duck

Aufweidersehen Me Duck

Sat Dec 4 19:30:00 2021

Saturday 4th December 7:30pm at the Glebe Field Centre

Paul Walker and Karen Pfeiffer are an Anglo-German husband and wife folk songwriter duo. 

Their varied repertoire combines beautifully written original songs and a fine choice of folk favourites delivered with marvellous, melodic vocal harmonies, skilful guitar accompaniment, the subtle use of flute and recorder, a charming onstage chemistry and commendable audience rapport.

Their different cultural heritage is a substantial and entertaining part of their show, with amiable, self-deprecating banter playfully drawing on and celebrating both the German and Brit stereotypes.

‘Great show!’ Graham Norton
