Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - MUSIC -

TWO duos have be­come one group for a UK tour.

Eve Selis and Marc Twang of San Diego out­fit The Eve Selis Band have joined forces with Californian’s Jeff Berkley and Cal­man Hart of Berkley Hart, to tour to­gether – un­der the name BHST.

The four­some be­gan work­ing to­gether this year and their sound is a mix­ture of folk and coun­try. They tour next month and you can see them at Seven Arts Cen­tre, Chapel Aller­ton, Leeds, on July 12. For tick­ets call 0113 262 6777 or visit www. sev­en­leeds.co.uk IT should be more redo­lent of moun­tain bik­ing and camp­ing than host­ing an eclec­tic mix of some of mu­sic’s big­gest names.

But Dalby For­est near Pickering, sit­u­ated in the heart of the North York­shire Moors Na­tional Park, will con­tinue to show its vast ver­sa­til­ity next week when its lat­est ar­ray of award-win­ning per­form­ers ar­rive at the in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar and, of course, scenic venue. James Blunt, Paul Weller and Dea­con Blue will take to the stage on suc­ces­sive nights as part of the Forestry Com­mis­sion’s For­est Live pro­gramme which first started out in 2001 with ap­pear­ances from Jools Hol­land and the Lev­ellers. Hop­ing to at­tract ma­jor acts to spec­tac­u­lar out­side lo­ca­tions through­out the UK, the con­cept has grown into an an­nual sum­mer event with in­come gen­er­ated from ticket sales spent on im­prov­ing the forests for people and its wildlife.

Paloma Faith and Blondie were last year’s main acts but it is Blunt, whose de­but 2005 al­bum Back To Bed­lam was the great­est sell­ing al­bum of that decade in­clud­ing hits like You’re Beau­ti­ful and Good­bye My Lover, who ar­rives to kick things off on Thurs­day, as part of the world tour of his lat­est of­fer­ing, Moon Land­ing.

The fol­low­ing night Weller, The Mod­fa­ther him­self, will no doubt dip into his The Jam and Style Coun­cil back cat­a­logue as he re­turns for a third sold-out gig at Dalby hav­ing fea­tured in 2004 and again five years later.

Fi­nally, Dea­con Blue, the leg­endary Scot­tish band that de­liv­ered ma­jor hits such as Real Gone Kid, Dig­nity and Fergus Sings The Blues, will round of this year’s event on Satur­day evening.
