Singer-songwriter Carrie Newcomer invites listeners to “pause the perpetual motion” of their lives with her elegantly layered, engaging and often contemplative songs. Described as a “soaring songstress” by Billboard and a “prairie mystic” by The Boston Globe, Newcomer’s spiritually progressive music is grounded in earthy truths. She has 19 nationally released albums, including her latest to be released this September, Until Now. Newcomer has released three books of poetry & essays, her song “I Should’ve Known Better” appeared on Nickel Creeks’ Grammy-winning gold album This Side, and she earned an Emmy for her PBS special An Evening with Carrie Newcomer.
Over the Rhine, comprised of songwriters Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist, have been performing an honest yet hopeful brand of songwriting since forming in Cincinnati in 1989. Not long after they began touring in the early ‘90s, they were invited to perform some seasonal songs on a public radio station. The songs and interpretations resonated with their fans, and in December of 1996 the group recorded and released their first song cycle of classic Christmas carols and original tunes called The Darkest Night Of The Year. The well-received recording kicked off the Christmas Tour tradition for the band that continues 25 years later.
