A Couple's 'Edge Of the World'

Produced by

About eight years ago, long-time musicians and partners Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler moved from their native Cincinnati to an 1830s brick farm house in rural Ohio. The latest album their band Over the Rhine put out is inspired by the place they live, and is a love letter and an ode to the joy of home. They speak with host Dick Gordon about the place they call “Nowhere Farm” and their album “Meet Me At The Edge Of The World.”





Lyrics to “Favorite Time of Light” from “Meet Me at The Edge of The World:”

Leave the dishes in the sink don’t overthink it

Close up the brokenhearted piano

Join me on the porch if you can swing it

Let’s dream an ocean in Ohio


It’s our favorite time of light

Just before the day kisses the night

You see the redwing blackbirds fly

The sun’s a big ol’ lazy eye

And when the day is bending low

And rolling fields begin to glow

Feels like we traveled all this way

Just so I could hear you say

It’s our favorite

Our favorite time of light
