After a decade releasing critically celebrated albums (BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners of ‘Best Original Track’ 2016 and ‘Best Group’ nominees in 2019) and touring across the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, France, Denmark, Czech Republic and as far as Australia, The Rheingans Sisters will release their much anticipated fifth studio album in 2024! Produced by New York based Adam Pietrykowski (whose work includes Lady Maisery’s latest album tender) the visionary duo’s new album will also feature collaborations with stars of the contemporary old-time American scene, combining grounded yet soaring sonic contributions to the sisters’ already celebrated genre of “avant-garde trad” (Songlines).

Influenced as ever by the past, The Rheingans Sisters’ music continues to lean defiantly forward. Their fourth album ‘Receiver’ (“a masterpiece of modern folk music” FRUK) which reached #2 in Transglobal World Music Charts and was rated one of the Top Ten Essential Folk Albums of 2020 by Songlines Magazine, blended the sounds of century-old recordings of Norwegian fiddlers and dancing feet with songs in ancient Occitan language and true stories from the Northern Irish Civil Rights movement alongside future-yearning, minimalist and painterly compositions describing modern and often urban experience with the warmth and empathy their songwriting has become well known for (“truly in a league of their own”- RnR Magazine) with sounds of electric guitar and synth underpinning raw textures of fiddles, feet and medieval bass drones of the tambourin à cordes.

The Rheingans Sisters new record will be about the here and now: indeed, about the very moment in which music is happening, is released, is most alive in the world. As ever, the presence of risk, adventure and improvisation during live shows makes the sisters lean towards each other and keeps their audience at the edge of their seats while simultaneously held in a shared musical journey unlike any other.

Now booking: the new album will be released in summer 2024, supported by four national tours over 2024-2025 and two summer festival seasons.
