Slocan Valley’s Holly Hyatt will be playing Finley’s on Oct. 26 to celebrate the release of her new single River Flows.

A vocalist, acoustic and electric bass player and songwriter, Hyatt began singing, performing and songwriting at an early age. She got her start at local coffee houses, bars, which morphed into the last 14 years performing in the blues and roots duo, Holly and Jon.

The pair have released four albums, and their 2016 release Shufflin’ the Blues has been receiving rave reviews in the blues community and was No. 1 on the RMR acoustic blues charts. Their third album, 1929 received international radio airplay, and was included in the top-10 best Canadian Blues albums of 2013.

She has shared the stage with the Brubreck Brothers, jazz pianist Taylor Eigisti, Sonny Rhodes, Russell Jackson, Roy Forbes and Linda McCrea. Hyatt has also been the opening act for Carlos Del Junco, Leon Russell, the Golden State Lonestar Revue and worked on the promotion team for Merle Haggard’s 2004 Canadian tour. Her song So Close was also nominated for Song of the Year at the 2017 Kootenay Music Awards. She continues to perform and grow as a songwriter, vocalist, bassist, performer and business woman.
