Michell, Pfeiffer & Kulesh are an all-female close harmony folk trio that brings together the exciting talents and exquisite voices of award-winning singers and songwriters Odette Michell, Karen Pfeiffer and Daria Kulesh.

​Their stunning three-part vocal harmonies bring to life spellbinding folk tales, expertly woven together with a vibrant international twist – a project that would never transpired had it not been for the lockdowns, when three of the busiest female performers on the folk scene found themselves somewhat less occupied than before. Introducing Stage winners at The Great British Folk Festival 2023 by public vote, they wow their audiences with a deeply moving, exciting and unique live show.  Theirs is a unique cross-cultural, multi-lingual, multi-instrumental collaboration, turning familiar folk tunes into something fresh and powerful.

“Tremendous” (Mike Harding), “Exquisite” ( and “Entrancing” (FATEA)

Odette Michell (England) is an award-winning British folk singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who’s sound is deeply rooted in the English folk tradition. Odette plays guitar, bouzouki and accordion and has played alongside Show of Hands and Seth Lakeman, as well as opening for the likes of Martin Carthy and Phil Beer.

Karen Pfeiffer (Germany) burst onto the British folk scene only four years ago as one half of the Anglo-German duo Paul Walker & Karen Pfeiffer. Having extensively toured their shows in the UK and around the world, Karen is wooing audiences not only with her natural theatricality and life affirming playful energy, but also with her “seriously impressive, mezzo-soprano voice: one that would not be out of place on the opera stage.” (The Living Tradition).

Daria Kulesh (Russia) has been described by Mike Harding as “one of the finest voices and one of the most intriguing and interesting songwriters on the present folk scene”. Mixing her Eastern roots with Western folk influences, she creates an original and exciting sound, full of passion and magic. Born in Russia but based in the UK for the last 15 years, she fearlessly explores her heritage and turbulent family history in Ingushetia (North Caucasus) with songs that “aren’t just sung, but lived”.

Doors open 1.45pm. Music starts 2.30pm. The venue is mixed seated and standing. Tables are limited and available on a first come first served basis so, if you’d like a seat, we recommend arriving early!
