Nomadic local duo Megan Jean and the Klay Family Band (or KFB for short) welcome their buddies Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands (from Greensboro, N.C., pictured) to town for a fun double-bill at the Tin Roof. Singer/guitarist/percussionist Megan Jean and bassist/banjo player Byrne Klay have been on the road all season playing their Americana/blues-rock. They recently filmed a scene in Bristol, Tenn., for a PBS show called Music Voyager that is set to air on Sun. Feb. 26. “It’s safe to say it’s the biggest break of our career to date,” says Megan Jean. “We will be featured on a four-part episode on the music of Tennessee — go figure — alongside Béla Fleck, the North Mississippi Allstars, and many other artists of note.” The duo is currently working on a new album titled The Devil Herself, a follow-up to their impressive debut, Dead Woman Walkin’. Bandleader Crystal Bright handles vocals, accordion, keys, and various exotic instruments on stage with her backing combo. The Silver Hands include guitarist Diego Diaz, percussionist Sandy Blocker, bassist Robbie Link, and guests. The group recently released an eerie and beautiful studio album called Muses and Bones. It’s an ethereal collection with a chilly sparseness and an unusual mix of styles, from gypsy folk and carnivalesque blues to the kind of gothy pop both Siouxsie Sioux and Adele Adkins might dig.
