Winners of the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for ‘Best Original Track’, The Rheingans Sisters
make bold, playful, innovative folk music that is anchored in traditions without ever being
bound by them. Audiences across the world have been captivated by their performances,
each one an authentic invitation to participate in an intuitive musical conversation between
two musicians at the height of their powers. A life-time’s deep learning of European
traditions is carefully re-imagined to produce beguiling new music. Older musical landscapes
shape new songs, asking irresistable 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.
