CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Over The Rhine is on the road again, this time supporting Ani DiFranco for an 11-date tour in March. The tour will bring the two ground-breaking acts to several Eastern and Southern cities beginning in Concord, N.H. on February 28 and culminating in New Orleans on March 16 (see full itinerary below).

According to Over The Rhine member Karin Bergquist: “Ani DiFranco is the kind of artist that everyone aspires to be, but few find the inner strength to pull it off. She's a visionary and a pioneer in that she was way ahead of the curve by starting her own record label and owning her own music from the start. She's influenced a whole generation of young guitar players with her unique approach to her instrument. And her songwriting is honest, vulnerable, unpredictable and juicy as hell.

She adds, “It's an honor to support Ani on a tour that finds her reflecting back and no doubt celebrating the many small victories that await those who are willing to risk everything in hopes of being true to themselves."

The dates:
February 28: CONCORD, NH: Capitol Theater
March 1: ROCHESTER, NY: Auditorium Theater
March 2: PITTSBURGH, PA: Carnegie Music Hall of Homestead
March 5: COLUMBUS, OH: Lifestyle Communities Pavilion
March 6: KNOXVILLE, TN: Bijou Theatre
March 7: ATHENS, GA: 40 Watt Club
March 11: TAMPA, FL: Tampa Theatre
March 12: JACKSONVILLE, FL: Freebird Live
March 14: NASHVILLE, TN: The Ryman
March 15: BIRMINGHAM, AL: Workplay Soundstage
March 16: NEW ORLEANS, LA: House of Blues

Over the Rhine continues to promote its latest album, The Trumpet Child, with its smoldering cabaret tour of America boasting SOLD OUT shows (already in 2008) in St. Augustine, Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, Houston, Austin (2 nights), and Dallas. In addition to its March tour with Ani DiFranco, OtR will also be performing with the BoDeans March 9th for NPR's etown, and will be the sole act featured April 7th on the public radio program Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour.

Also, the track “Nothing Is Innocent" will be included in the first edition of the Starbucks' iTunes compilation, New Music Quarterly, due out in early June. The compilation will be promoted and sold at Starbucks stores nationwide via digital download cards.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
