Lizzy Hoyt is coming to Merville.

Celtic musician Hoyt in the house

Lizzy Hoyt Merville House Concert April 6; $20

Lizzy Hoyt is an award-winning Canadian vocalist and songwriter who also ranks among the top Celtic instrumentalists in the country.

With the voice of an angel, Lizzy delivers music and stories with soaring melodies rooted in Celtic and folk traditions. Gardeners Green in Merville will be welcoming Lizzy for a house concert on Wednesday, April 6. Tickets are $20 and include a dessert buffet. Lizzy’s fourth album, New Lady on the Prairie (produced by John Reischman and Lizzy Hoyt), demonstrates a mature and refined ‘trans-Atlantic’ 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. Her arrangements are detailed and atmospheric, and her talents as a multi-instrumentalist are featured in spades.

Hoyt’s gift as a vocalist is highlighted in each of her performances as she sings with lyricism, gentleness, passion and musicality. Her original Canadian-inspired songs tell stories of home, war, immigration, and love. Traditional Celtic material is brought to life with freshness while maintaining the musical and historical integrity of the songs. And, she will dazzle you with her talents on fiddle, guitar, mandolin, harp and step-dance.

For more information on the April 6 concert, call 250-337-5337.
