Lizzy Hoyt is an award-winning Canadian vocalist and songwriter with the voice of an angel. She delivers music and stories with soaring melodies rooted in Celtic and folk traditions.
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 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 (fiddle, guitar, Celtic harp, accordion). The album was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award, a Western Canadian Music Award and Three Independent Music Awards (USA). It was also named one of the Best Albums of 2014 by the Indie Acoustic Project (USA)!
Lizzy’s music has been recognized on both the national and international level. She won “Best Female Artist” at the 8th International Acoustic Music Awards (a contest that saw over 11 000 applicants), was a 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. In addition to these, Lizzy 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.

Fearless front-woman Derina Harvey leads this Alberta-based five-piece Celtic-rock act, who offer an authentic east-coast experience with a fresh take on traditional tunes as well as their own original jigs and reels. Their rocky, rhythmic undertow is layered with guitars, fiddle, and topped by Derina’s powerful voice. These transplanted east-coasters have earned a reputation with their high-energy live show, leaving many an audience out-of-breath and hollering from their seats!
2016 has seen the group gain further success and industry recognition by adding an album to their discography, and continuing to deliver engaging live performances. The band has been steadily building a following by playing live (over 150 shows in the last three years). Though based in Alberta, the band continues to add to their tour schedule to include all of Western Canada and was recently selected to participate in showcases in Saskatchewan (OSAC Showcase 2016) and Manitoba (Manitoba Arts Network Showcase 2016). The band has even toured in Newfoundland each summer for the last three years, where they have been featured at George Street Festival (St. John's, NL) opening for the Newfoundland act Shanneyganock. In 2015, they shared the stage with other east-coast favourites including Jimmy Rankin, The Irish Descendants, Pogey, and even some rock acts such as The Trews, Kim Mitchell, and Trooper. The band has two full length recordings to their credit. Their self-titled debut album (2013) has garnered radio airplay across Canada, and their second album Rove and Go (2016) has become even more widespread, being added at over 30 stations across Canada and tracking at #65 on CKUA's top-played albums for 2016. The band was also nominated for an Edmonton Music Award in 2016 in the “Artist to Watch” category.
