have been performing Irish folk music for twenty one years, playing at festivals and performing arts centers throughout the Midwest. Their five albums reflect an evolution of scope and sophistication.
The band originated with brothers Tom and Brian Leahy and their six children. All but one of the children left our home town starting careers in all corners of the United States.
Today, world renowned bayanist (button accordion) Stas Venglevski joined the brothers with Evan to produce lively, widely accessible music.
Yes, playing in bars can be intimate and quite fun but it's nothing like playing in a theater. Click HERE to read what the directors are saying about Leahys Luck.
Not too many bands can say they've been around for over 23 years. Here's a synopsis of where the original band members are living. Michelle lives in Ojai, CA, Sarah in Orlando, FL, Maura in Concord, NH, Caitlin in Boulder, CO, and Colin in Port Angeles, WA. In their absence, we've come to rely on other musicians such as Stas. St. Patrick's Day weekend and Milwaukee's own Irish Fest is usually a reunion with Michelle, Sarah, and Caitlin joining the band.
