Critically acclaimed husband and wife duo Over the Rhine will perform at e-Town Hall on July 7 in support of their latest album Love & Revelation (released March 15). Celebrating 30 years of making music together, the duo’s first album in four years finds them in a deeply reflective place, contemplating both personal loss and the wavering of America’s collective compass. The record explores the many forms of grief and how we process it, but as with much of Over The Rhine’s body of work, there is a deep undercurrent of hope.

Strong words, but Indianapolis’ Charlie Ballantine could be one of the most intriguing artists to saunter from the jazz landscape in a good long time.
