The Rheingans Sisters at the lighthouse, Deal

The Rheingans Sisters make playful, powerful and richly connecting music that is wholly contemporary while deeply anchored in folk traditions.

The award-winning multi-instrumentalists, composers and folk scholars are nominated for ‘Best Duo/Group’ at 2019 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

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 reimagining 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.

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 critically acclaimed fourth album ‘Receiver’ in 2020 on the Bendigedig Label.
