I’m planning my first trip to Ohio.
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF HEARTACHE:
A Special 20th Anniversary Holiday Celebration of the Music of Over the Rhine:
December 19, The Taft Theatre, Cincinnati, OH: An evening with Over the Rhine. featuring music from decade one.
December 20, The Taft Theatre, Cincinnati, OH: An evening with Over the Rhine, featuring music from decade two.
Here’s the skinny folks. The first night, we are going to delve deeply into the early recordings which include Till We Have Faces, Patience, Eve, Good Dog Bad Dog, and our first Christmas record, The Darkest Night of the Year. We will enlist the help of various musicians and guests for this first evening, but are very excited to announce that Ric Hordinski and Brian Kelley will be joining us to revisit many of the early songs which launched our career.
The second night will focus on songs from the last ten years, drawn from the recordings Films For Radio, OHIO, Drunkard’s Prayer, The Trumpet Child, and our most recent Christmas record, Snow Angels. Again, look for various guests and key contributors to Over the Rhine’s recordings as the night unfolds.
Sound like a party? Yes it does. (Discounted tix for those attending both nights are available at OvertheRhine.com.)
And we will bring the year to a close once again at St. Elizabeth’s in Norwood, Ohio, with our Sunday Soiree, on December 21st at 3pm. God willing, we’ll bask in the afterglow of a two night stand, another amazing year, share some wine and refreshments, and conjure up some acoustic music in this ragged, sacred old cathedral. More info and tickets will be made available soon at OvertheRhine.com.
