Over the Rhine and Carrie Newcomer will require proof of vaccination or a recent negative Covid test (w/in 48 hours) for entry into all of their indoor shows for the remainder of 2021. Masks will be required as well for all those in attendance, and for all staff at the venue.

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.

A $1 historic preservation fee will be added to each ticket to help maintain The Sheldon for future generations.

Over the Rhine / Carrie Newcomer Safety Protocols – Fall 2021

After consulting with epidemiologists and in the interest of our safety, the safety of our band members and touring personnel, the safety of our fans (affectionately referred to as our extended musical family) and the safety of the staff at the many venues around the country that we have come to know so well over the last several decades, Over the Rhine and Carrie Newcomer will require proof of vaccination or a recent negative Covid test (w/in 48 hours) for entry into all of our indoor shows for the remainder of 2021.

Masks will be required as well for all those in attendance, and for all staff at the venue. If vaccination rates improve, and infection rates begin to stabilize, we can revisit down the road, but this is where we are. We very much want the shows to go forward. Safely of course. Everyone in Over the Rhine’s and Carrie Newcomer’s touring entourage is fully-vaccinated.

We look forward to seeing you and making some much needed music.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
