The Rheingans Sisters
The award-winning multi-instrumentalists, composers and folk scholars, The Rheingans Sisters, make playful, powerful and richly connecting music that is wholly contemporary while deeply anchored in folk traditions.
Over the last five years, three brilliant albums and a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award win, Europe and Australia have been utterly captivated by their very special live performances.
Drawing on their pan-European musical scholarship and their spirited mission to make connections between the music of different geographical roots, they have developed a rich artistic approach to the deconstruction and re-imagining of traditional music alongside their own beguiling compositions.
Performing live, the sisters are inimitable; full-hearted performers and spontaneous on-stage improvisors, with adventurous use of fiddles, voices, banjo, bansitar, tambourin à cordes, spoken word, dancing feet and percussion.
Many of the instruments that feature in Rowan and Anna's shows are handmade by their luthier father Helmut Rheingans.
