Leahy is a musical powerhouse of eight Canadian brothers and sisters who have been playing together their entire lives. Influenced by roots, pop, country and traditional Canadian music, their definitive sound brought audiences to their feet in 175 stadiums around the world when they toured with country superstar Shania Twain.
Leahy’s album sales have exceeded 500,000 units internationally since the release of their self-titled CD in 1996, Lakefield in 2001, and In All Things in 2004. Known for their exceptional musicianship, electrifying step dancing, and passion to perform, their name has become synonymous with all that is real, extraordinary, and unforgettable!
Their musical career is lined with many awards and distinctions as diverse as the music they play. They were the subject of the Academy Award-winning documentary Music Most of All. They are recipients
of multiple Juno Awards and they carry the honor of being Virgin Canada’s highest-selling recording artists.
The demand for Leahy’s awe-inspiring performances has kept them touring extensively, captivating audiences everywhere.
“...the musical heart of the evening was...Leahy, an eight-member brother and sister team from Canada, whose fiddle-driven instrumental music is augmented by keyboards, percussion, and step-dancing. Its approach seems so gloriously free of commercial pollution... this is an act whose music is invigorating...” Los Angeles Times
“...ferocious and extremely energetic works gain momentum through plenty of acoustic
instruments...” Chicago Sun Times
“...striving energy... intoxicating...” New York Times
