Solana Beach church welcomes Eve Selis and her band Aug. 6

Eve Selis and her Band of Ruffians will perform Saturday evening, Aug. 6, at Calvary Lutheran Church.

Selis, a local singer and songwriter who was named Best Americana Artist at the San Diego Music Awards last year and has put out numerous CDs, will do everything from country, folk and rock ‘n’ roll to blues and R&B at the 7 p.m. concert.

Selis has shared the stage with many music luminaries, including Kenny Loggins, Travis Tritt, Jewel, Counting Crows, Joan Osborne and Albert Lee.

She has appeared at such venues at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, the House of Blues in Hollywood, The Bitter End in New York City, Humphrey’s Concerts By the Bay in San Diego, and The Bluebird Café in Nashville.

Selis is the third performance in a four-part season at Calvary that began March 19 with studio and spiritual singers Jeff and Vangie Gunn and May 28 with The Believers, a college choir from Sweden.

On Sept. 17, Mark Price will give dramatic readings as he portrays the life of Saint Joseph — next to Mary, the one who knew Jesus the best. Price has been playing Biblical figures for a quarter-century in churches, halls and theaters and on film around the world.

Calvary has also announced that its annual Christmas concerts will be held Dec. 16 and 17 this year. Performance times and other details will be announced in the fall.

Tickets for the Selis concert are $20 general admission, $15 for ages 17 to 10, and free for children younger than 10. Free wine and cheese will be available starting at 6:30 p.m.

An optional barbecue dinner will be served at 6 p.m. in the church courtyard, with tickets costing $10, and children under 12 free; RSVP for dinner reservations at (858) 755-2855.

Calvary is at 424 Via de la Valle, just north of the San Diego County Fairgrounds.
