Lizzy Hoyt Trio
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).
