Xavier Leahy is a multi-instrumentalist and performer who plays accordion, fiddle, acoustic and electric guitar. As the oldest son of Leahy drummer – Frank, and his wife Chanda (Chanda’s School of Dance), he has been immersed in music his entire life.

Xavier has toured extensively with Leahy; first as a young boy, and today as a remarkable young musician in his own right. His proficiency on many instruments has brought him both acclaim and attention. Most recently, Canadian Country superstar, Brett Kissel invited Xavier to join him on his cross Canada tour.

Xavier’s deep passion for music is not only obvious in his playing but in his writing and recording a well. He plays many styles and crosses genres effortlessly. His compositions reflect his vast musical influences, one of which is on Leahy’s most recent album, Good Water.  Xavier is featured on this track (Star of the Sea) playing the accordion.

In addition to touring, for the last several years, Xavier has been teaching accordion, guitar, and fiddle to students in his hometown of Golden Lake, Ontario.
