All in the Family 

Pennsylvania chanteuse gives props to her ancestors for her life onstage.

From the day Tiffany Apan was born, her family knew she'd make a living as a songbird. Her grandparents scored the minor country hit "Whispers" in the '50s, her dad banged the drums in a couple of rock bands in the '70s, and her great-aunt, Betty Joy, was a '40s supermodel, who guest-starred a few times on The Jackie Gleason Show. The Pittsburgh native first broke in her singing chops at 13, when she was cast in regional productions of The Crucible, The Magic Flute, and Die Fledermaus. Now 27, she's carving another niche in the entertainment business with her one-woman tour, which brings her to Cleveland tonight to promote her single, "Porcelain Doll," and CD, Poet. The disc contains revamps of traditional Celtic and English tunes, including "Scarborough Fair." Apan has also thrown in a tribute to her grandparents by recording a Patsy Cline-inspired copy of "Whispers." Tiffany Apan goes onstage at 8:30 tonight at the Barking Spider, 11310 Juniper Road. Admission is free. Call 216-421-2863 or visit www.barkingspidertavern.com.
Sat., March 22, 8:30 p.m., 2008
