Critically acclaimed husband and wife duo Over the Rhine celebrates 30 years of making understated yet emotionally-charged music with the March 15th release of Love & Revelation. Self-produced and releasing on their own Great Speckled Dog label, Over the Rhine’s first new music in four years finds the beloved duo in a deeply reflective place, contemplating both personal loss and the wavering of America’s collective compass. 2013’s acclaimed double album Meet Me At The Edge Of The World found the pair settling into a new chapter of their lives in rural Ohio. On the other end of the emotional spectrum, Love & Revelation explores the many forms of grief and how we react and process, but as with much of Over the Rhine’s body of work, there is often a deep undercurrent of hope.
You can catch Over the Rhine this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at Memorial Hall!
Over the course of the last three decades, Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist (aka Over the Rhine) have established a reputation for delivering genuine, heartfelt stories of the human condition that are both empathetic and provocative. The pair’s expansive, incisive lyrics and earthy sound are often inspired by time and place. Each album represents a certain chapter in their lives – what they have experienced, and the resulting emotional landscape. Love & Revelation embodies the last four years.
