What you are about to experience is something incredible born from over three generations of musical heritage. Joining us from Lakefield, Ontario (Canada) is a truly remarkable family, both in size and talent.

Doug and Jennifer Leahy and six of their eight children have spent the last 18 months performing all over North America. Whether it was sharing the stage with Irish legends The Chieftains, or performing at all genres of music festivals, or showcasing their talents on both sides of the boarder, one thing about The Next Generation Leahy is certain: the music emanating from these children is other-worldly, it is talent beyond their years, it is joyful and unique. Prepare to be amazed by some young people whom you will never forget.

The Next Generation Leahy
Building on over three generations of Leahy musicianship, Doug Leahy, together with his wife Jennifer and six of their eight children, are keeping those traditions alive through music, song, and dance. Although all under the age of 16, Evelyn (7), Joseph (9), Cecilia (10), Angus (11), Gregory (14) and Adele (15) all bring to the stage a level of musical mastery rarely seen in a group so young. A Next Generation Leahy performance is nothing short of remarkable. With their parents leading the action on stage, the children bring to life the high energy, infectious Celtic music people associate with the Leahy heritage. The Leahy children are accomplished multi-instrumentalists with the remarkable ability to enamour audiences of all ages. Fiddle, cello, French accordion, piano, singing, and French-Canadian step-dancing all find a voice on stage. With an already seasoned stage-presence and a love for what they’re creating, audiences will share in the Next Generation Leahy’s joie-de-vivre, making for a truly unforgettable evening for the whole family.
