Presented by Rowan Rheingans

A Fringe First award-winner at 2019’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, adventurous new writing meets the warmth of a folk gig in this heartfelt and personal one woman show, uniquely weaving immersive storytelling with live fiddle, banjo and original songs taken from Rowan’s brand new genre-melding debut solo album The Lines We Draw Together (The Guardian’s Folk Album of the Month).

Unravelling the joy and pain from a story of her grandmother’s youth in 1940s Germany, Rowan celebrates small acts of resistance and boldly asks a troubling question for our times: can hope for our future be found in the very darkest pockets of our history?

Co-written with Liam Hurley.

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

Supported by Women Make Music-PRS Foundation.
