Leahy has secured a place as one of the country’s most highly regarded progressive folk-roots bands. Their “Call to Dance” instrumental single introduced audiences to a new way of accessing a uniquely Canadian music genre.
The “Leahy sound” – a combination of strong stride piano, unique bass guitar and drumming styles along with driving rhythm guitar – was the foundation from which wildly talented fiddle-led instrumentals and vocals were launched to mainstream music listeners. Leahy would go on to win three Juno awards and receive countless accolades for their dynamic and powerful performances.
Leahy has sold more than half a million albums worldwide, been featured in three PBS television specials, and the subject of an Academy Award-winning documentary, The Leahys: Music Most of All. And the band opened for Shania Twain throughout the USA, Canada and the UK on her record-breaking Come On Over tour.
They’ve been back in the studio recording new music. Built on their roots and the distinctive “Leahy sound”, it reveals the band’s drive to continue pushing beyond its traditional footings, delivering solid music, pulse-raising rhythms, compelling storytelling and infectious melodies.
Leahy’s show on our Bone Lake stage will be full of energy, big rich sound, poignant songs, fiery instrumentals and percussive step dancing. Unforgettable.
