©2019 The Next Generation Leahy

"This family brings pure joy! With their amazing, natural talent and charming delivery, this up-tempo show will never be forgotten."

Natalie MacMaster

As with all forces of nature, the music and energy created by The Next Generation Leahy simply cannot be contained. The drive to create music is powerful within each of the Leahy children. It has given rise to multi-instrumental talents, whose dynamic live performances have been described as “astounding” and “breath-taking.”
For the last several years, Next Generation Leahy has performed across North America, and shared the stage with the likes of The Chieftains, We Banjo 3, The Tenors, and Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy. With one CD under their belt, they are working on new material for a new CD to be released in 2019.
Belying their young ages, these siblings are all accomplished multi-instrumentalists whose live performances are filled with the high-energy, infectious music associated with the Leahy name. However, not content to play only the music of their Celtic heritage, these musicians explore many genres of music and pull influences from far and wide. Fiddle, cello, French accordion, singing, piano, and French-Canadian step-dancing serve to bring their unique style of music to life.
 
The music that lives in each of these young people - which is so joyful, so positive, and so rare – overflows from them and affects audiences who have witnessed something truly unique and remarkable.

"I’ve never experienced anything like this before. When they played with us, The Next Generation Leahy simply brought the house down!"

Paddy Moloney & The Chieftains

"When the Leahy kids took and commanded the stage...their musicianship was stellar, their
dancing and energy was tight and professional and with dad's help the total performance was
engaging and enjoyable. After two encores people still didn't want to leave and as they did I was
mobbed by people telling me this was the best thing they had ever seen at the Schauer Center and
to get them back."

Joe Konrad, The Schauer Center
