The weather was cold!. I wore seasonal color. Many were extremely seasonal and it added to the fun of the evening..

Benaroya seems to have the best flow from garage to hall to garage and back out onto the street. It's expensive, but not having to take your life in your hands to exit is value added!

Leahy is a family group that has played together for a LONG time. While they are good--their music has the appearance of playing together for a LONG time. It helped that they brought in dancing--but dancing in pants is not nearly as enjoyable...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“[Leahys’] approach seems so gloriously free…that it feels like a tonic for the spirit.” —Los Angeles Times

Description

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.
