Finally, the perfect holiday show for music lovers who appreciate great songs but are burnt out on the typical holiday fare!
Acclaimed Americana band Over the Rhine, consisting of the husband-and-wife duo of Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist, bring their “reality Christmas” show to the Avalon stage!
For 17 years they’ve played an annual holiday homecoming show in Cincinnati, their hometown, and along with their substantial catalog have released three holiday albums beginning with 1996’s “Darkest Night of the Year,” now considered one of the most unique and very best Christmas albums anywhere.
In addition to sharing the stage with Bob Dylan, John Prine, and My Morning Jacket (among others), they’ve been compared to Shawn Colvin, U2, 10,000 Maniacs, and the Innocence Mission.
But their “aggressively beautiful” (Newsday) and “lovely, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting musical mosaic” (Paste Magazine) is really in a class all its own.
