Rowan Rheingans: The Lines We Draw Together Album launch with special guests

Rowan Rheingans’ much-anticipated debut solo release The Lines We Draw Together is a heartfelt yet unflinching musical essay on memory, history, fascism, waltzes, folk-song, bird-song, trauma, family & war. Inspired by her own grandmother’s youth in 1940’s Germany, The Lines We Draw Together is a meditation on ancestry; a pertinent anti-war statement and an urgent questioning of our collective handling of ‘dark histories’. This makes it an historic provocation for our current political climate while also a triumphant celebration of human empathy, resilience and hope.

A companion to Rowan’s acclaimed one-woman show Dispatches on The Red Dress, her debut solo album features cathartic collaborations with indy, jazz, classical and electronic musicians, including bassist Michele Stoddart (The Magic Numbers) and clarinettist Jack McNeill (Propellor).

For this special concert, Rowan will perform her new album in full, featuring guest musicians from the record. The intimacy of a folk gig meets the ancient traditions of storytelling and the emotional soundscapes of genre-melding music in this unique performance.

...not just an excellent songwriter but someone with a fine grasp of the delicate balance of joy and pain that makes us human
