Preview: Over the Rhine at the Lincoln Theatre

Chris DeVille, Columbus Alive

Over-the-Rhine, the historic Cincinnati neighborhood, was known as a prime example of inner city decay until a recent revitalization project brought it so far back that CityBeat named the place Neighborhood of the Year this year.

Like the neighborhood for which they're named, Over the Rhine attracts a lot of praise for being safe. The Cincinnati songwriting partnership of married couple Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist, has built a fervently dedicated audience for their sighing, supposedly progressive coffeehouse folk.

They'll make their second straight holiday stop through the Lincoln this Wednesday, a year to the day after the last one.
