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.

Selkirk Pro-Musica will present the Lizzy Hoyt Trio on December 6 at 8 p.m. at the Shambhala Music and Performance Hall at Nelson’s Selkirk College Tenth Street Campus.

Hoyt won Best Female Artist at the 8th International Acoustic Music Awards (a contest that saw over 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 Nelson 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 together her talents as a vocalist, songwriter, fiddler, multi-instrumentalist (fiddle, guitar, harp, mandolin) and step-dancer to ensure the audience is touched and entertained. Travelling with her are her regular musicians: upright bassist and harmony singer Keith Rempel, and guitarist and mandolin player Chris Tabbert.

Tickets are available at the door and at Otter Books.
