A spectacular sight and sound!
“Few families are able to muster the sheer numbers much less the playing and dancing talent to mount a self-contained version of “Riverdance,” but the Leahys are no ordinary family.” – The Washington Post
Over their 25+ year career, the three-time Juno Award-winning LEAHY has secured a place as one of Canada’s premier progressive roots and Celtic bands. Their emergence on the Canadian music scene in the late 1990’s with their chart-topping instrumental single Call to Dance, introduced audiences to a new way of accessing a uniquely Canadian music genre. The “Leahy sound” – a combination of strong stride piano, unique bass lines, and a contemporary drumming style along with driving rhythm guitar – was the foundation from which wildly talented fiddle-led instrumentals and vocals were launched to mainstream music listeners. Leah would go on to win three Juno awards and receive countless accolades for their dynamic and powerful performances.
The siblings have toured extensively throughout Canada, Europe and the United States, and have been the subject of three PBS documentaries and an Academy Award-winning film.
Performances are full of energy: big rich sound, poignant songs, dynamic instrumentals, and percussive step-dancing – all delivered with unapologetic passion and the sublime of sibling harmony. In one word – unforgettable.
