Winners of the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for ‘Best Original Track’, The Rheingans Sisters make bold, playful and innovative contemporary music that is anchored in folk traditions without 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.
The Rheingans Sisters’ debut album Glad Gold Hearts was released on Rootlet Records in June 2013 to wide critical acclaim. Longlines described them as "musical miscegenation with unabashed conﬁdence, a duo of considerable abilities and imaginations to match” and nominated Rowan and Anna for Best Group and Best Newcomer in the Songlines Music Awards.
Their second, award-winning album Already Home, recorded over just ﬁve days in a remote forest studio in mid-Wales, is an enticing, thoughtful and adventurous record that quickly caused a stir when it was released in November 2015. Amongst a ﬂurry of fantastic reviews, The Independent called Already Home ‘superb’, fRoots made them a cover-feature and described the album as "quite simply extraordinary” and Folk Radio UK hailed it as "not only a beautiful and exceptional record, but an important one”.
