Lizzy Hoyt Trio

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).

Don’t miss this won­der­ful evening of Celtic-folk music com­ing to Winnipeg!
