Over The Rhine to tour with Ani DiFranco

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.

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.”
