An­cient Carols, Lizzy Hoyt com­ing to King’s The­atre

Annapolis Valley Register - - ARTS -

It’s a Celtic Christ­mas at King’s The­atre with Win­nipeg’s award­win­ning singer-song­writer Lizzy Hoyt and her trio of mu­si­cians.

They will per­form at King’s The­atre on Dec. 2 at 7:30 p.m. The sea­sonal show, called “An­cient Carols for a Win­ter’s Night,” will de­liver mu­sic with soar­ing melodies that are rooted in Celtic and folk tra­di­tions. Hoyt has a huge fol­low­ing in the West, and lo­cal au­di­ences will be de­lighted to dis­cover not only her gor­geous voice, but that she’s a mas­ter of the fid­dle, gui­tar, and harp. And she step dances too.

Hoyt is known for bring­ing Cana­dian his­tory to life with mu­sic, her songs have gar­nered awards and nom­i­na­tions while also con­nect­ing strongly with au­di­ences across the coun­try. In 2013, she was awarded the Queen’s Di­a­mond Ju­bilee Medal by the Gov­er­nor Gen­eral of Canada for her out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to com­mem­o­rat­ing Cana­dian vet­er­ans and his­tory through mu­sic.

A tal­ented multi-in­stru­men­tal- ist, Hoyt toured for 10 years as a side mu­si­cian be­fore pur­su­ing her own projects. 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.” Her ex­tra­or­di­nary mu­si­cian­ship has been rec­og­nized for its clar­ity and pre­ci­sion.
