Incredible, high energy group who obviously love their work. Amazing what not growing up with a TV and talented involved parents can create!

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.
