The Rheingans Sisters make powerful and richly connecting music that is wholly contemporary while deeply anchored in folk traditions.
Winners of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for ‘Best Original Track’ in 2016, and nominated for ‘Best Duo/Group’ at the 2019 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, the multi-instrumentalists have released three critically acclaimed albums in five years.
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.
A unique and unmissable act on the folk and world music stage today, Rowan and Anna play a plethora of instruments in their live shows, many of them handmade by their luthier father Helmut Rheingans who is based in their native Peak District home
The Rheingans Sisters released their much anticipated fourth album, Receiver, in 2020 on the Bendigedig Label.
