Nikki Talley @The Sentient Bean

MUCH LIKE beloved Charlestonians Megan Jean & The KFB, Americana artists Nikki Talley and husband Jason Sharp are a rockin’ road-warrior couple, playing an estimated 200 shows annually while living out of a Chevrolet van named Blue Bell.

Talley and Sharp are Kickstarter champs—their van was funded with the crowdsourcing platform, and they met a fundraising goal for a new album in October. They’ll cut the record at home in Asheville at the heralded Echo Mountain Recording Studio (SAV faves like American Aquarium and Band of Horses, and giants like Smashing Pumpkins, have recorded there).

The Ashevillians bring the mountain sound to the coast with acoustic guitar and banjo in tow. Talley’s an incredible vocalist with a rich timbre and Gillian Welch-like lilt. She and Sharp spin lovely, contemplative stories, marked by warm fingerpicking and the bright ease of banjo.

Saturday, 8 p.m., suggested donation.
