Over The Rhine, Blood Oranges in the snow, feature CD 12/19

"Blood Oranges in the Snow" is the new holiday-themed record from the Ohio-based folk duo Over The Rhine.

The trend isn’t surprising considering Over The Rhine’s husband-and-wife core, Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist, so often employ the strings and bells of pristine acoustic folk—tones and styles ideally suited for holiday music.
