Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer

paulkaren

In addition to their UK shows, these “two exceptional musicians”(do) have established a significant reputation in Ireland and Germany - and of course even on their New Zealand and Australia tours sometimes the odd German folk song, or a German ‘joke’ will find its way into a “fantastically entertaining night” (Secret Sounds).

With their unique onstage-chemistry and their widely praised harmonies, the Anglo-German duo ‘Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer’ entertain and engage their audiences wherever they perform. Combining their original material with a fine choice of folk favourites Paul and Karen craft a show of “songs with groove and goosebumps guaranteed”, as the Stuttgart press put it recently.

Karen’s voice, clear and yet so powerful, leaves audiences mesmerised. She adds with alto recorder, tin whistle and percussive instruments to Paul’s vocal and individual guitar style.

Scarecrow

scare

 

Scarecrow is an Oxfordshire based acoustic band that plays folk music but offers something a bit different: some instrumental music, some songs and occasionally a bit of jazz or blues. Some tracks are well known and others more obscure but all have been worked on to produce tight and unusual arrangements.

The band was formed at the end of 2006 bringing together folk, classical, rock and blues backgrounds to create a trio that doesn’t sound like just another folk band. Scarecrow is already gathering quite a following.

Thrup'nny Bits

bits

We are a three voice unaccompanied harmony group singing traditional and contemporary folk songs, some music hall material, with some Early Music and humorous songs for good measure. Many of our songs encourage (even require) audience participation and we hope they get as much enjoyment out of it as we do.

Daisybell

daisybell

Since forming in 2016, Daisybell have been making waves on the local and national folk scene, delivering performances of passion, wit and raw emotion at clubs from Coventry to Gateshead, Banbury to Sheffield, releasing an EP and a video, fitting in a couple of live radio apprearances and drawing acclaim for their “Sing Like A Daisybell” vocal workshops.   2017/18 saw the trio appearing at fesivals in Warwick, Broadstairs, Moira, Lichfield, Bromyard, Alcester, Bedworth and more. Lauded for their songwriting, harmonies and engaging stage presence, now is a great time to check out their gigs, recordings and social media banter.
