Lizzy Hoyt has a rich melodic menu to offer
The Kootenay Gallery will present the Lizzy Hoyt Trio in the next concert of the TD Bank Sunday Concert Series. Lizzy Hoyt is known for her lively and energetic performances that bring audiences to their feet. Her music has been recognized on both the national and international level. She won “Best Female Artist” at the 8th International Acoustic Music Awards (a contest that saw more than 11,000 applicants), was a 2011 Canadian Folk Music Award Nominee for Traditional Singer of the Year and has been named a finalist in both the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the USA Songwriting Competition. Her performance in Castlegar will feature her regular Celtic-folk material as well as some material from her new holiday album called, A Christmas Song. This album is a collection of ancient Christmas carols and features the Celtic influences in her music.
As usual, Hoyt will blend her talents as a vocalist, songwriter, fiddler, multi-instrumentalist (fiddle, guitar, harp, and mandolin) and step-dancer to ensure the audience is touched and entertained!
Traveling with Lizzy are upright bassist and harmony singer Keith Rempel, and guitarist/mandolinist Chris Tabbert.
This concert will take place at the Castlegar United Church on Merry Creek Road. The date and time to note are Sunday December 9 at 1:30 p.m. General admission is $12 and $10 for Kootenay Gallery members.
