Lizzy Hoyt

Lizzy Hoyt

One of Canada’s most powerful Celtic-folk artists, Lizzy is known for bringing Canadian history to life with her songs like Vimy Ridge, White Feather, and New Lady on the Prairie. She has been praised for her mastery of the fiddle, guitar and harp and her voice has been described as “otherworldly,” “angelic,” “sweet” and “pure.” New Lady on the Prairie blends influences from Celtic, bluegrass and folk traditions. The album was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award (Traditional Singer of the Year), a Western Canadian Music Award and three Independent Music Awards. Released in October, it still ranked among the top 20 most played Canadian folk albums of 2014. She has been recognized with ten awards at multiple international film festivals for her Vimy Ridge video. For her Nick performance Lizzy will perform with Keith Rempel on upright bass and harmony vocals and Chris Tabbert on acoustic guitar and mandolin.

Tim Isberg

Tears Along The Road was ranked by Music Canada among the Top 25 Favourite Albums of 2015. Devil on Your Back, about turn of the century outlaws on the western Blackfoot Plains, was a finalist for Best Song of Alberta for the Calgary Folk Music Festival song contest.
