Rick's Picks of the Week: Over the Rhine

Rick's Picks of the Week is the roots rock, americana-esque, folk band, Over the Rhine; with three chances to catch smoldering vocals and cinematic melodies, Friday and Saturday at 8pm, and Sunday at 7:30 pm, at The Triple Door.

The Southern Ohio-based husband-and-wife team of multi-instrumentalists Linford Detweiler (keyboards, electric bass, vocals) and Karin Bergquist (vocals acoustic guitar, piano), otherwise known as Over the Rhine, has a poetic way of harmonizing earnest and raw lyrics with enduring melodies.

The Long Surrender, the newest addition to the band's discography, is titled as a response to the lifelong desire to let go of certain expectations in order to remain open and curious; as Karin explains, "it seems like many of our friends are currently wrestling with various forms of 'letting go,' so hopefully, the ideas conjured by the title feel somewhat universal." The album was released nationally in February on OtR's own Great Speckled Dog label, named after their great dane Elroy, and was recorded by Grammy-award winning producer, Joe Henry and features a duet with artist Lucinda Williams.

See a Triple Door favorite, Over the Rhine, this upcoming weekend, Friday the 18th and Saturday the 19th at 8pm, and Sunday the 20th at 7:30 pm on the Mainstage. Tickets are $30 advance/$35 day of show/$40 VIP {front Row Seating} and can be purchased online, click here>>
