Celtic Music In Rossland!
The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture annual Performance Series continues on Saturday, November 8. There is an updated time and venue for this performance- 4:00pm at the Rossland Art Gallery.
Through the Performance Series RCAC aims to continuously present a wide variety of high calibre artists with a variety performing arts styles. This year is no exception, with performances ranging from Celtic music to masked theatre. The second performance of the 2014/2015 series will be Lizzy Hoyt, a multi-award-winning Canadian vocalist and songwriter who ranks among the top Celtic instrumentalists in the country.
Lizzy delivers music and stories with soaring melodies rooted in Celtic and folk traditions. Her mastery of the fiddle, harp, and guitar combined with the voice of an angel keep the audience hooked, body and soul, throughout her entire performance.
