Nominated for ‘Best Band’ at the 2019 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, The Rheingans Sisters are one of the most visionary acts on the British folk scene today.
Creating playful, muscular and richly connecting music that is wholly contemporary while anchored in folk traditions, The Rheingans sisters captivate audiences with their adventurous and vibrant use of fiddles, voices, banjo, bansitar, tambourin à cordes, poetry and percussion.
Winners of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for ‘Best Original Track’ in 2016, the duo’s life-time of deep learning of European traditions is continually re-imagined to produce beguiling new music. Older musical landscapes shape new songs that ask irresistible questions concerning our own lives. Always creating space for spontaneity and surprise, instrumental pieces are wholly contemporary while drawing from the well of musical knowledge passed down through generations. In a brand new collaboration with record label bendigedig (Catrin Finch & Seckou Keita) they will release their fourth studio album Receiver in October 2020.
