Hymn Time In The Land Of Abandon

After three-plus decades of recording as Over the Rhine, Linford and Karin revisit and reimagine a collection of old hymns and gospel songs: “Music that we grew up singing, music as present in our formative years as the air we breathed.”

An early review of an advance copy of Hymn Time, the very first Over the Rhine record made in the barn loft at Nowhere Else, offered this succinct summary:

“Truly lovely—spare, sweet and subtle renderings that transform the familiar into something fresh and new.”

May it be so.

Ten Songs Without Words
Linford Detweiler
Solo Piano

Also among the very first recordings from the barn loft: Linford, alone at a piano, playing Ten Songs Without Words.

“From the very first time I sat down at a piano, I discovered that melodies were available. A river of music was already flowing up above me. When I closed my eyes and pressed a few black and white keys, something beyond words would begin to make itself known. It made it difficult not to believe that music was a miracle of some kind or other.”

Over the Rhine Barn Loft Concert ~ Nowhere Else

Saturday, June 1, 2024
Gates Open at 5pm; Music starts at 7pm
Bonfire to follow, weather permitting

Join us for another magical evening of music on our small farm in Ohio as spring continues to unfurl. These intimate concerts in the climate-controlled 1870s barn loft have turned into some of the most memorable nights of our 30+ year career. We’re digging back through our catalog in search of songs we haven’t performed in awhile (Films For Radio, Ohio, Eve) and are also anxious to share newly-arrived tunes that will likely appear on the next Over the Rhine album. We’ll include a few from our recent release, Hymn Time In The Land Of Abandon, and Ten Songs Without Words as well.

Encircle a prized loved one, or a handful of favorite companions, and come on out. We’ll lift a glass together to all the shared years and miles, tears and smiles.
