Lizzie Hoyt performs in Slave Lake on Dec. 1

‘Ancient Carols for a Winter’s Night’


Years ago, Lizzy Hoyt and her trio performed at the first Stage North Christmas show with a wonderful performance. Their show was so popular that Stage North has hosted a community Christmas show every year since.

Lizzy and her trio are back again on December 1 with a heartwarming family show that celebrates the magic of Christmas in a warm and festive atmosphere.

Lizzy’s new show, entitled “Ancient Carols for a Winter’s Night”, takes place at the Legacy Centre. It will feature a number of well-known and traditional carols, some beautiful but lesser known pieces and some hidden gems.

Lizzy is an accomplished musician who plays the harp, guitar, and violin, stepdances, and sings with a pure and angelic voice that some have described as “otherworldly”.

Her soaring melodies are rooted in Celtic folk traditions. Known for bringing Canadian history to life, in 2013 Lizzy was awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal by the Governor General of Canada for her outstanding contributions to commemorating Canadian veterans through music. Watch her moving video “Vimy Ridge” on YouTube to see what the fuss is about!

Opening for Lizzy is the Koinonia High School Band. They have been practising for months for this event!

Tickets are $30 in advance with discounted rates for students, seniors and children. They are available at The Source, REMAX, the Rotary Library and online at

There will also be tickets at the door for an additional fee.

Doors open at 7 p.m. with the show starting at 7:30 p.m. The Elks will host the bar.
