A Next Generation Leahy Christmas brings holiday cheer to Guelph

Young members of legendary musical family perform at the River Run Centre

GUELPH, ON November 29, 2019 – Joyful, positive and energetic. Young members of the legendary Leahy family will share the spirit of the season during A Next Generation Leahy Christmas at the River Run Centre on Saturday, December 14, at 7:30 p.m. The Main Stage performance is presented as part of the Guelph Infiniti Music Series.

A Next Generation Leahy Christmas features Leahy siblings Adele, Gregory, Angus, Cecilia, Joseph and Evelyn displaying their outstanding talents in a youthful Celtic holiday celebration. All 16 years old or younger, the siblings are accomplished multi-instrumentalists whose live performances feature the high-energy, infectious Celtic-based music associated with the Leahy name. Fiddle, cello, French accordion, singing, piano and French-Canadian step-dancing serve to bring the group’s unique musical style to life.

“The Next Generation Leahy simply brought the house down,” Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains says of the young Leahy performers.

The Next Generation Leahy has toured across North America, sharing the stage with artists including We Banjo 3, The Tenors, The Chieftains, Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy. The group has released one recording, the self-titled The Next Generation Leahy, and was recently featured on the Nickelodeon music competition series America’s Most Musical Family, shown on YTV in Canada.

Featuring a cast of inspiring and energetic performers, A Next Generation Leahy Christmas will fill you with the spirit of the holidays.
