Sibling revelry

Siblings who are best friends? It may seem like a cliché or an impossibility, but it’s remarkably true for Jessica Lea and David Mayfield. Growing up in a bluegrass family in Ohio, the brother and sister got their start in the family band One Way Rider. They’ve come quite a way since then, working with folks like The Avett Brothers and Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys on solo releases. All, of course, with one another’s help – David tosses out some bass for Jessica’s work, and the sister lays down some vocals and lyrics for her brother. Few siblings can boast of such a lack of sibling rivalry.

Wednesday 12/5 $12, 8pm. The Southern Café & Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
