The cosy metropolis of San Diego, California, is home to a wave of enduring singers and songwriters.

And riding the crest are Eve Selis and Marc Twang of the Eve Selis Band.

Eve has been bringing her brand of California country to this side of the Atlantic for many years.

But this month, Eve and Marc have joined forces with another musical powerhouse from southern California for a UK tour which comes to Tingewick Village Hall at 7.30pm on Friday, July 18.

Country folk duo Berkley Hart comprises Jeff Berkley and Calman Hart.

Though the two duos have known each other since they were in their 20s, their musical paths crossed only occasionally – until now.

Nobody remembers who suggested it, but in 2013 they decided to get together and write a song, just for fun.

They soon discovered they enjoyed singing together every bit as much as writing together, and Berkley Hart Selis Twang was born.

Their new self-titled album combines country rock with country folk to create a fresh sound that’s rich with vocal harmony and powerful lyrics.

The promoters say: “From the heartwarming opening track This Is Home to the heart-wrenching ballad If I Lost You to the heart-stopping rocker Delilah, these tracks are guaranteed to touch and inspire.

“If you like Crosby Stills nash & Young, the Eagles and Linda Ronstadt, you will love Berkley Hart Selis Twang.”

The evening will feature songs from each duo’s extensive catalogue, with Berkley Hart opening the show and the Eve Selis Band closing the first set.

In the second set, all four artists come together to perform songs from the album.

Tickets £12 in advance, £14 on the door.
