Organist Cameron Carpenter's flashy technique and flamboyant, iconoclastic style have earned him international fame and comparisons to Liberace. While Carpenter is a natural showman, his instrumental prowess goes well beyond tricks. He's the first organist ever to receive a Grammy nomination in the Best Solo Instrumental Performance category. Carpenter's repertoire ranges from the complete works of J. S. Bach to film scores, original works and transcriptions of jazz and pop classics. A Juilliard graduate, Carpenter is currently the world's most famous organist, and his star is continuing to rise. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“[Leahys’] approach seems so gloriously free…that it feels like a tonic for the spirit.” —Los Angeles Times
A family. A musical group of brothers and sisters. A sound, a style of music, a way of life, a volcanic explosion of talent and energy, intense emotion, and feral passion.
The group’s members are both instrumentalists and dancers, with several members skilled in fiddle-playing (most notably the group’s best-known member, Donnell Leahy). The female members of the band often perform step-dancing-style routines, and it is generally the female members of the group who sing.
The Leahys were raised on a farm near Lakefield, Ontario, Canada, where their roots run deep. Ancestor Michael Leahy arrived there in 1825 from Ireland and brought with him a rich musical tradition that was passed down through the generations.
This family of instrumentalists, singers, and dancers brings a rare level of originality and musicianship to the stage. This originality includes music that the Leahys write, arrange, and produce.
