BIO

After a decade releasing celebrated albums (BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners of ‘Best Original Track’ 2016 and ‘Best Group’ nominees in 2019) and touring across the world, The Rheingans Sisters will release their much anticipated fifth studio album in 2024!

Produced by New York based Adam Pietrykowski (whose genre-diverse work spans rock and contemporary classical as well Lady Maisery’s latest album Tender) the visionary duo’s 5th album and new live show is a sonic and aesthetic development of their live work so far, creating an even more immersive musical journey for their audience. From baroque fiddle tunes to trance beats, from metal-inspired arrangements of folk ballads to improvisations with phone voicenotes, Rowan and Anna once again create like painters; revealing in bold colours the next grounded yet soaring contribution to the sisters’ unique “avant-garde trad” (Songlines).

Influenced as ever by the past, The Rheingans Sisters’ music leans 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, songs in ancient Occitan language and true stories from the Northern Irish Civil Rights movement with future imaginings, dystopias and dreams.

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 synths underpinning raw textures of fiddles, feet and medieval bass drones of the tambourin à cordes, The Rheingans Sisters are one of the most visionary acts on the British folk scene today.
