“Leahy generated one of the most positive responses of the acts we've had here,” said Carl Daehler, executive director of the VRCFA. “They sing, dance and play a type of music that really defies characterization. Their music is strongly influenced in the Irish-Scottish heritage but they have a modern rock spin to it that has earned them fans from around the world.”
Leahy is a group of eight siblings comprised of four brothers, Doug, Seamus, Donnell and Angus, and four sisters, Erin, Maria, Siobheann and Agnes.
The group plays keyboards, drums, bass, guitar, and fiddles, while step-dancing to original tunes.
“It isn't often we can say a show is truly cross-generational, but Leahy is just that and a wonderful experience all of its own,” Daehler said. “It would be a shame for anyone who loves music and dance to miss this show on Nov. 11.”
