SINGER Eve Selis will perform in the Moat Theatre, supporting the release of her new album “Family Tree”.

The winner of 7 San Diego music awards in Americana and Adult Alternative, she recorded the album at the Big Fish Studio in San Diego.

The funding of the CD was financed entirely by fans of the Eve Selis band via the crowdfunding websites Kickstarter and PledgeMusic. A video appeal on both sites asking everyone to be a part of her record label brought in donations from 10 to 10,000 US dollars. The money generated allowed her to record at the studio and to hire Albert Lee, described by Eric Clapton as “the best guitarist in the world.”

Her tour takes her to a number of venues in the UK as well as Belfast and a festival in France.

She visits the Moat on Friday September 28, starting at 8pm. Tickets are priced between €18 and €20.
