Frank Leahy

Drums | Fiddle

LEAHY is an award-winning Canadian Celtic music group known for their unique blend of traditional and contemporary music genres. The band is comprised of siblings from the 11 member Leahy family.

Frank is number 7 in the line-up and is the drummer for the group. In addition to the traditional music with which he and his siblings were raised, Frank also loved 70’s and 80’s rock. This influence found its way not only into Frank’s world of drums, but Leahy’s unique sound that blended traditional and modern styles of music. As a fiddle player, Frank started at a young age and continues to both teach and play today. Frank and his wife Chanda continue to foster a legacy of music with their 6 children in Golden Lake, where they teach music and dance.

All of the Leahys continue to be immersed in music in a variety of ways; nurturing their own children, and reaching out in their respective communities, collaborating, teaching, writing, producing and performing. For the Leahys, Camp is one of the most rewarding experiences of their musical career. “It is a small way for us to give back to the communities and culture that afforded us a life of music in the arts. Working with fellow musicians and aspiring artists is a gift beyond words. The participants who attend the Camp feel like extended family to us; we see many of them return each year which means we see them develop and grow. What a privilege! Every Music Camp is a reunion! We can so easily identify with them and their musical experiences. It’s a journey we know well and enjoy sharing and navigating with others”.
