Biography

The Rheingans Sisters is an English folk duo comprising fiddle players and singers Rowan and Anna Rheingans from Sheffield. The duo won the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for ‘Best Original Track’.

The sisters grew up in the Peak District, surrounded by traditional music and encouraged to pick up the fiddle by their musician mother and violin-maker father from an early age. Rowan Rheingan is well-known on the English folk scene as part of hugely popular BBC Folk Award nominated trio Lady Maisery as well as for her work with Nancy Kerr & The Sweet Visitor Band and the Songs of Separation super-group alongside Eliza Carthy and Karine Polwart. Anna Rheingans lives and works as a fiddle player in Toulouse and is an expert in southern French folk music, having gained a 1st class diploma from the Conservatioire Occitan. As both sisters have also spent a significant amount of time studying fiddle music in Sweden and Norway, they pull a range of influences from both northern and southern European fiddle traditions into their own interpretations, compositions and arrangements.
