Winners of the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for Best Original Track, The Rheingans Sisters make playful, powerful and richly connecting music that is wholly contemporary while deeply anchored in folk traditions.

Drawing on their pan-European musical scholarship (having studied extensively in France, Sweden and Norway) and their spirited mission to make connections between the music of different geographical roots, they have developed a rich artistic approach to the de-construction and reimagining of traditional music alongside their own beguiling compositions.

Since the release of their award-winning album Already Home (2015) audiences across the UK, Europe and Australia have been captivated by their live performances; as full-hearted performers and on-stage improvisors – via the adven-turous use of fiddles, voices, banjo, bansitar, tambourin à cordes, poetry and per-cussion – The Rheingans Sisters are a unique and unmissable act on the folk and world music stage today.

Their hotly anticipated third album ‘Bright Field’ was released in March.
