A courageous new work by twice BBC Radio 2 Folk Award-winning songwriter Rowan Rheingans. Adventurous new writing meets the warmth of a live gig in this heartfelt and personal show, uniquely weaving immersive storytelling with live fiddle, banjo and genre-melding original songs. Unravelling 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? 

‘Vivid songwriting and composing… spectacularly beautiful’
