The Bills are renowned among fans for their instrumental virtuosity, lush vocal arrangements, exuberant live performances, evocative songwriting, and a refreshing sound that transcends musical boundaries and defies simple categorization. The Bills are: Marc Atkinson (mandolin, guitar, vocals), Adrian Dolan (fiddle, accordion, piano, vocals), Chris Frye (guitar, lead vocals), Richard Moody (violin, viola, vocals), and Scott White (upright bass, vocals). Their albums, Let Em Run and All Day Every Day, each garnered Juno nominations. Their latest CD, Yes Please, offers up twelve original compositions and a seductive arrangement of a medley of gypsy-jazz ballads. The Bills’ often-collaborative originals coax sublime beauty, energy and rhythm out of their instruments and layered vocal harmonies. A Bills live show is a legendary experience. Since forming in 1996, the band has delighted theatre and festival audiences from Copenhagen to California, with their breathtaking musical explorations and their unscripted onstage wit and charm.
Lizzy Hoyt won Best Female Artist at the 8th International Acoustic Music Awards and was a Canadian Folk Music Award nominee for Traditional Singer of the Year. With the voice of an angel, Lizzy delivers music and stories with soaring melodies rooted in Celtic and folk traditions. Her fourth album, New Lady on the Prairie demonstrates a mature and refined ‘transatlantic’ sound that blends influences from Celtic, bluegrass and folk traditions. The title track, inspired by Lizzy’s great great aunt immigrating to Canada from Ireland in the early 1900s, demonstrates her ability to craft songs that are touching, poignant, and lyrically rich.
