Leahy's the name and fiddling's the game of this popular Canadian Celtic group. The Leahy family is represented here by eight musicians and showcases brother Donnell, undoubtedly one of the world's great bow wranglers. Backed by piano and keyboards, drums, bass, guitar and mandolin, step dancing, and still more fiddles, Donnell accelerates through medleys of Celtic reels and jigs, setting new records for speed. The American fiddling tradition is featured on the saucy "Alabama," while Donnell digs into his gypsy roots for the fiery Hungarian "Czardas." LEAHY is a real toe-tapper, with moments of repose for a lament or two.

THis CD was great! I'm a big fan of Celtic music and a big fan of fiddling, and Leahy incorporates both of these. The tracks are mostly violin, but they have other instruments as well. A great choice for anyone who likes Celtic fiddling.
