A Leahy Family Christmas
A Leahy Family Christmas

Start Date: Nov. 29, 2012
Time: 7:00 PM

Embrace the spirit of the holiday season with Leahy, a Canadian whirlwind of eight siblings performing a triple-threat of fiddle-driven music, dance, and vocals—augmented by keyboards, guitar, and percussion—influenced by the family’s Irish and Scottish ancestry. The band’s Christmas concert highlights holiday favorites, original seasonal pieces, and the Leahy fare that has made the band one of Canada’s most appealing exports. The raven-haired Leahys grew up in Ontario, where their father educated each in the ways of the fiddle, while their mother, a champion step dancer from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, taught them to sing, dance, and play the piano. A yearning to explore new sounds drew the musicians to a variety of genres and instruments. Leahy members continue to forge new paths with the group’s category-defying music, yet their Celtic-Canadian roots forever anchor them.
