The Rheingans Sisters

After a decade releasing critically celebrated albums and touring across the world, The Rheingans Sisters perform material from their latest album in the Music Room.Influenced as ever by the past, The Rheingans Sisters’ music continues to lean defiantly forward. Their fourth album Receiver, which reached #2 in Transglobal World Music Charts, blended the sounds of century-old recordings of Norwegian fiddlers and dancing feet with songs in ancient Occitan language and true stories from the Northern Irish Civil Rights movement.Alongside future-yearning, experience minimalist and painterly compositions describing modern and often urban experience with the warmth and empathy their songwriting has become well known for. With sounds of electric guitar and synth underpinning raw textures of fiddles, feet and medieval bass drones of the tambourin à cordes.The Rheingans Sisters' new record will be about the here and now: indeed, about the very moment in which music is happening, is released, is most alive in the world. As ever, the presence of risk, adventure and improvisation during live shows makes the sisters lean towards each other and keeps their audience at the edge of their seats while simultaneously held in a shared musical journey unlike any other."Scandi-noir, but tinged with joy and avant-garde trad" – Songlines"Brilliant complexity and sparkling diversity on show" – Folk Radio UK"Gorgeously seasonal" – Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2"The Rheingans Sisters are unique; their songs and tunes are special,completely absorbing, alluring, simple yet totally complicated" – Folk Wales OnlineTickets for this event include a £1 venue restoration levy, included in the ticket price.
