Get into the holiday mood with the high-spirited talents of The Next Generation Leahy. Building on over three generations of Leahy musicianship, Doug Leahy, his wife Jennifer and their six children are keeping the legacy and tradition alive through music, song, and dance. Doug – a member of the Canadian Celtic group “Leahy” – and Jennifer – a musician for most of her life – both understand the joy and exhilaration only music can provide.  It is no wonder, then, that their children inherited their passion for music.

The children are accomplished and multi-instrumentalists performing on the fiddle, cello, French accordion, and piano. The show is bursting with electrifying Celtic-based music, singing, and French-Canadian step-dancing, along with the beautiful carols and melodies of the holiday season. This December join The Next Generation Leahy and be entertained, energized, and inspired.
