But perhaps their greatest source of pride should be about their long lasting relationship, both as a musical group and as a couple. Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist formed Over the Rhine in 1989 and have been married since 1996. That's something to be proud of.

Detweiler and Bergquist named their band after one of the largest neighborhoods in Cincinnati, their home until moving to an old farmhouse in rural Ohio a few years ago. The three songs played in this session at KDHX surely take root in their current residence, and from the sounds of both members' early lives in Appalachia.

The couple splits songwriting duties, but it's mostly Bergquist who sings, providing folk-tinged and tender vocals. She often plays guitar too, and is accompanied by Detweiler on guitar, piano or bass. They complement each other and harmonize with one another impeccably, as any married couple should.

Lyrically, Over the Rhine's newest album, "Meet Me at the Edge of the World," is a bit uncommon as it deals with issues other than the usual falling in or out of love. Instead, we get a glimpse inside the couple's matured relationship, both the glamorous side and the less so. There's discussion of the commitment, the investment and the hard work it takes, but a lot is said about the joy of it, too.
