- "What an absolute joy to see these young people from age 4 up to age 13 on stage performing so beautifully and playing so well together. 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
- "This family brings pure joy! With their amazing natural and charming delivery, this up-tempo show will never be forgotten." - Natalie MacMaster
- "The Next Generation Leahy concert was truly the place to be on Saturday night. This high-spirited, infectious, fun-loving family dazzled the audience with their traditional Celtic and French-Canadian fiddle music, their lively step dancing, and their beautiful voices. I was on the edge of my seat all night clapping my hands and tapping my feet. It was exciting!" - Mollie Moloney, Parry Sound North Star
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 lead 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. Lead 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, showing just what young people are capable of. The joy of music is meant for all and Doug and his family are set on sharing that joy with each and every audience.
