In 1989, Over the Rhine
formed as a quartet: the soon-to-be husband and wife team Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist, guitarist Ric Hordinski and drummer Brian Kelley. The band has since dropped down to a duet (Detweiler/Bergquist) while releasing 12 albums over the last two decades, one of which nabbed the #25
's top 100 albums of 2007. Now, the band is gearing up to celebrate its 20th anniversary with a run of November and December concerts, including a two-night special event in the couple's hometown of Cincinnati.
The Dec. 19 and 20 dates split the band's career into two segments. The first night, Detweiler and Bergquist will be joined by their former bandmates for a celebration of Over the Rhine's first decade together. The second evening will feature the band's second decade, including 2007's aforementioned The Trumpet Child. The final performance of the year will be a more intimate gathering in St. Elizabeth's Cathedral, with wine, refreshments and music. Check out the band's official website for ticketing info.
