The Rheingans Sisters
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 award-winning duo offer a thoroughly contemporary musical vision, at once deeply anchored in pan-European folk traditions and uniquely creative, forging bold and beguiling new sounds.
Performing live, the sisters are full-hearted performers and spontaneous improvisers, with adventurous use of fiddles, voices, banjo, bansitar, tambourin à cordes, spoken word, dancing feet and percussion. Theirs is an intuitive musical conversation between two musicians at the height of their powers.
