Concert preview: Over the Rhine at Southern Theatre

Joel Oliphint
Karin Bergquist of Over The Rhine

The music of Cincinnati's Over the Rhine already sounds a little like mellow holiday tunes, so the duo's two Christmas albums, 2006's Snow Angel and 2014's Blood Oranges in the Snow, are a pretty perfect match for the band's oeuvre. The oft-melancholy Blood Oranges, in particular, stays in heavy rotation at my house this time of year. Also, even though this is a holiday show, expect Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist to perform some new songs from a forthcoming record, which is supposedly finished aside from artwork. (Safe bet)
