Klaus der Geiger & Marius Peters

Klaus der Geiger & Marius Peters A Cologne institution, so good he got into the Germany chapter of the final Rough Guide to World Music (written by yours truly). ‘Klaus the Fiddle Player’ first wowed Rudolstadt in the early 1990s. Now in his ninth decade, this street musician par excellence won the 2011 RUTH prize. As passionate as ever, applaud his very welcome return in the glad company of guitar whippersnapper Marius Peters. Expect political song, ballad (perhaps you’ll get ‘Scarborough Fair’), Heine, Pachelbel, Paganini and more. Miss this five-star marvel at your peril.
