Xavier Leahy is a multi-instrumentalist and performer who plays accordion, guitar, fiddle, and step-dances. 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 first started playing the accordion when he was 8 years old and became so proficient that he began to make special appearances with Leahy on their North American tours. He continuously brought audiences to their feet. Xavier’s deep passion for music led him to other instruments including, the fiddle, guitar, bass, and drums. He has already composed numerous pieces of music, one of which is on Leahy’s new and yet to be released CD, Good Water. Xavier is featured on this track playing the accordion.
For the last several years, Xavier has been teaching accordion, guitar, and fiddle to students in his hometown of Orangeville, Ontario.
