About Hamburger Küchensessions

A unique view into a singer-songwriter’s work. Visually reduced to the essentials, acoustically uncompromised

Since 2010 Jens Pfeifer has organized “Hamburger Kitchen Sessions,” a musical phenomenon well-known throughout northern Germany and beyond. The recipe is as simple as it is original. The scene: his small but cozy kitchen. The principle: the artist plays an acoustic set, close to a select audience. Without any bells and whistles, the essence of the songs are laid bare: pure music. The list of the 210 guests in the past six years reads like a Who’s Who list of singer/songwriters, from Gisbert to Knyphausen,ClickClickDecker, Cäthe and Olli Schulz to Tom Liwa and Enno Bunger to Moritz Krämer or Dota Kehr – all accepted the invitation of this native Oldenburger. Playing next to them were many artists who were often right at the beginning of their careers, such as Lùisa, Mine, Jan Röttger, AnnenMayKantereit, Rhonda, Joco or Dino Joubert. Appearing now from the independent label KOMBÜSE, on January 20, 2017, comes the forth CD with fourty new sessions, as well as a limited vinyl box with eight LPs, that contain all the previously published “Hundred Hamburger Kitchen Sessions“.

Coming now for the 5th time comes a large stage show from the cozy kitchen. Click here! The recipe has proven itself. A high-quality lineup of bands and solo artists meets an attentive audience. Observers have described what happens next as “magical.” The menu is garnished with specialties from north German cuisine. Hamburger Kitchen Sessions precisely.
