The southern Ohio-based husband-and-wife team of pianist/guitarist/bassist Linford Detweiler and vocalist/guitarist Karin Bergquist are back to grace the historic Lyric stage once again!
Their new studio album, The Long Surrender is something rare and wondrous — an intimate epic. The fan-funded record was released on OtR’s own Great Speckled Dog label (named after the couple’s Great Dane, Elroy). It’s the bountiful result of a collaboration between the couple and producer Joe Henry.
The album title “speaks to our ongoing desire to let go of certain expectations (and much of what we are so convinced we know for sure) in favor of remaining open and curious,” Karin explains. “It seems like many of our friends are currently wrestling with various forms of ‘letting go,’ so hopefully, the ideas conjured by the title feel somewhat universal. And I think the title speaks to the arc of a lifelong commitment to writing and performing regardless of recognition.Learning when to work hard and when to let go. Learning to leave room for grace to billow our sails occasionally. Learning not to white-knuckle everything.”
