The lush and bittersweet genre mélange of southern Ohio spouses Over the Rhine soars through the Weinberg Center’s 1920s-era auditorium as the duo performs intimate epics teeming with aural surprise. The musical union between Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist has beguiled audiences for more than 20 years with euphonious Americana melodies and daring lyrics that could make a snowman blush. The duo’s latest album, The Long Surrender, described as the “most emotionally raw and musically nuanced of the band’s fine career” by Paste Magazine, was funded by the band’s devoted fans, produced by Grammy winner Joe Henry, and conspired in the band’s Civil War–era home. The multi-instrumentalists’ live performances pull the ripcord of the heart as Bergquist’s seductive vocals captivate onlookers without the help of pyrotechnics or dramatic props. Fans sway with the music’s pendulum swing of hopeful and haunting tunes as Over the Rhine’s songcraft creeps into the mind and lingers like an unemployed, chain-smoking roommate.
Weinberg Center for the Arts
When Dan and Alyce Weinberg purchased the Tivoli in the late 1950s, they imagined its ornate chandeliers and sweeping ceilings watching over concerts and performances that would keep the auditorium as full as it was in the theater's 1920s heyday. After a devastating flood in 1976 almost decimated the space, the Weinbergs and other community members restored the historic theater, which now flourishes as a home for live entertainment, films, and the performing arts.
