Rowan Rheingans: Dispatches on the Red Dress

Dispatches on the Red Dress is an intimate and courageous new show by twice BBC Radio 2 Folk Award-winning songwriter Rowan Rheingans.

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.

Unravelling the joy and pain from a story of her grandmother’s youth in 1940’s
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?


“Sublime…celebrates family, nature and the ties that bind and goes on to pack a fierce political punch.”

The Guardian

“Utterly spell-binding”

The Scotsman
