Entwining traditional and contemporary elements, Lizzy Hoyt delivers a diverse evening of music with soaring melodies rooted in Celtic and folk traditions.
As a performer, Lizzy dazzles audiences with her diversity. Not only an accomplished songwriter, her gifts as a vocalist are highlighted as she sings with lyricism, gentleness and passion. Her talents as an instrumentalist are featured in spades: blistering fiddle sets, finger-style guitar, and ancient melodies for Celtic harp.
Based on repertoire from her acclaimed album, “New Lady on the Prairie”, this show is a lyrical nod to the past — a collection of songs about Canadian history, immigration, women, war, love and family. Lizzy's songs are timeless, touching, poignant and lyrically rich. For this project, Lizzy was nominated for Songwriter of the Year (Western Canadian Music Awards), Solo Artist of the Year (Canadian Folk Music Awards), and Story Song of the Year (Independent Music Awards).
Don't miss this wonderful evening of Celtic-folk music coming to Winnipeg!
"She takes her voice into cracks and corners of the clouds as she unites modern and traditional stylings. She is at ease in the right here and now, but with utter simplicity she can turn back decades or centuries in her songs." - Dan St. Ives, Calgary Herald
"The expertise displayed by each musician is jaw-dropping and it's matched by their sensitivity and taste... Lizzy Hoyt displays equal mastery of the fiddle, harp and guitar, complemented by an otherworldly voice. To top it off, she comes across as a truly natural and relaxed, people loving performer." - Jim Sinclair, Castlegar News
