The next performance in Lakes District Arts Council’s 13th performing arts season takes place on March 7 at 7:30 p.m. in the Lakes District Secondary School Multipurpose Room. An award-winning performer with the voice of an angel, Lizzy Hoyt delivers music with soaring melodies rooted in Celtic and folk traditions. An acclaimed songwriter as well as a superb musician, Lizzy is one of Canada’s most powerful Celtic-folk artists. She is known for bringing Canadian history to life through music. Lizzy 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 by the Edmonton Journal and Calgary Herald. The guest artist at this performance will be Brad Bell, and the concession will be provided by the LDSS Grad class, as a fundraiser for Grad 2019 activities.
