Rowan's Dispatches on a Red Dress received a wonderful review in The Guardian from the Edinburgh Festival…..Rowan Rheingans’s sublime Dispatches on the Red Dress (?????), set in Bretzenheim, the German municipality where the musician’s grandparents still live. Performing with transfixing economy as she moves from banjo to fiddle to storytelling, Rheingans appears to be weaving a romantic tale of sweet-natured relatives and idyllic childhood memories”. Mark Fisher.

Rowan Rheingans is a fiddle player, banjoist and songwriter widely regarded as one of the foremost in-novators in folk music today. Best known for her work with acclaimed bands Lady Maisery, The Rheingans Sisters and Songs of Separation, Rowan has won two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards (‘Best Orig-inal Track’ in 2016 & ‘Best Album’ in 2017) and is a six-times nominee. Her duo The Rheingans Sisters are currently nominees in the prestigious ‘Best Duo/Group’ category at the the 2019 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

In what will prove to be a career-shifting year, Rowan premiered her new solo show ‘Dispatches on the Red Dress’ in a two week run at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August. This Autumn, Ro-wan takes this ambitious and deeply personal one-woman show on a national tour. “a mesmerising gig that had me thinking for days” fRoots
