Eventbrite - Next Generation Leahy - Pawleys Island Festival of Music & Art

Next Generation Leahy

Building on over three generations of Leahy musicianship, Doug Leahy, together with his wife, Jennifer, and their children, are keeping those traditions alive through music, song, and dance.

Doug, as a member of “Leahy” and Jennifer, having played music throughout her life, both understand the joy and exhilaration only music can provide. It is no wonder then that their children understand innately that music will be a huge part of their lives. Even the smallest children feel the music pulsing through their veins. They are drawn to it. They are passionate about it.

It is this drive to create music that has led Doug and Jennifer’s children to achieve so much, even at their young ages. Still all in elementary school, the children are accomplished multi-instrumentalists. Led by Doug, live performances are filled with the high-energy, infectious Celtic-based music people associate with the Leahy heritage. Fiddle, cello, French accordion, singing, piano, and French-Canadian step-dancing all find a voice on stage. And the children, so in love with what they are doing, enamour audiences who don’t want the show to end. Having shared stages across North America with “Leahy”, their performances leave audiences in awe.

This rare talent in children so young is an inspiration to other children and families alike. The joy of music is meant for all, Doug and his family are set on sharing that joy with each and every audience.
