“We are always touched when local talent gives back to United Way and our community to help others in need. We are honored that the treasured Cincinnati band, Over the Rhine, and Cincinnati Bell are partnering to help support our efforts to lift children and families out of poverty,” said Rob Reifsnyder, president, United Way of Greater Cincinnati.
“With one in three individuals in the Greater Cincinnati community living below a level of self-sufficiency, we are grateful to these two wonderful Cincinnati institutions. They are creating an opportunity for Cincinnatians to come together to celebrate great music in Washington Park, benefit United Way’s mission and help children and families. I’ve seen Over the Rhine in concert – they’re great!”
Over the Rhine has established itself as one of the most respected bands in the country since forming in 1989. The band, led by Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler, is known for its unique sound, a blend of folk, blues, rock & roll and gospel that often transcends easy categorization.
In addition to its robust catalogue of studio and live albums, Over the Rhine has performed with Bob Dylan, Squeeze, Ani DiFranco, and Cowboy Junkies.
Throughout its career, Over the Rhine has maintained a strong connection to Cincinnati. The band recently celebrated its adopted hometown with the 2017 single, “Welcome Home.”
