My husband, guitarist Andy Brown and I had a fantastic time on our recent tour of Germany.
Here is a review of one of our performances from the Badische Zeitung newspaper of Southwest Germany:
A Top-Notch Duo - Petra van Nuis and Andy Brown Win Over the Birklehof
Petra van Nuis (vocals) and Andy Brown (guitar) wowed their audience in the auditorium of the Musikhaus Birklehof. The likeable duo from Chicago presented such treasures from the Great American Songbook as "When the World Was Young," "Baby, Won't You Please Come Home," "Zing Went the Strings of My Heart" and "Autumn in New York."
Guitarist Andy Brown was convincing with his sensitive, technically and interpretively brilliant playing. Petra van Nuis made the lyrics accessible to her audience in a loose, relaxed and entertaining manner with her very melodic and supple voice, which is both expressive and varied. As a duo, they both harmonized perfectly and understood each other almost blindly.
With this internationally touring duo, Florian Heilman, the program director of the Birklehof concerts, has once again brought top-notch music to the Birklehof and the High Black Forest.
