Over the Rhine

With special guest Romantica (solo)

About Over the Rhine

When you listen to Over the Rhine, the supremely talented husband-wife duo of Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler, you quickly fall under the spell of Karin’s compelling voice, ethereal and earthy at once, and then you notice their subtle, satisfying arrangements, all the instruments so exquisitely balanced, and finally the lines of the songs start hitting you.

Paste Magazine praises their “lovely, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting musical mosaic.” The Washington Post applauds their “understated, country-tinged charm.” The Wall Street Journal describes their album, Meet Me at the Edge of the World, as “subtle and elegant, with airy musical arrangements and breathtaking vocal harmonies that fit the title of the album.”

What Other People Have Been Saying...

“the most spine-tingling live show I’ve seen and heard in recent memory.” – Deborah Crooks, No Depression

“Over the Rhine expertly explores those contrasting moods in a work as exquisitely beautiful as Van Morrison’s most graceful efforts.” – Los Angeles Times

Ben Kyle

About Ben Kyle

Ben Kyle is the songwriter-frontman behind the beloved alt-country band,  Romantica, and also performs under the same name as a distinctive solo artist. This will be one of his solo performances, which offer wonderful and intimate views of this creative and compelling artist.

Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, but embracing the musical roots of North America upon his family’s emigration to Minneapolis in his teens, Ben has won numerous International Songwriting Competition awards and his recordings have been critically heralded: PASTE Magazine named Romantica’s album, America, “One of the Best Albums of the Year” in 2007 and American Songwriter has called his latest release “Perfect.”

Ryan Adams, Alejandro Escovedo, Sara Watkins (of Nickel Creek) and Dan Wilson are some of the artists Ben has worked with and his duets recording with Austin TX roots sweetheart Carrie Rodriguez, We Still Love Our Country, was a hit with Americana.
