Fowler Center to present Canadian powerhouse group, Leahy, in concert

Feb. 27, 2007 -- Arkansas State University’s 2006-2007 Fowler Center Series continues with the Canadian group, Leahy, performing Thursday, March 8, at 7:30 p.m. in Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Dr., Jonesboro.

Leahy is a musical powerhouse of eight Canadian siblings who have been playing together their entire lives. Influenced by roots, pop, country, and traditional Canadian music, their definitive sound has brought audiences to their feet in 175 arenas around the world. They have sold more than a half million copies of their three CDs, “Leahy” (1996),”Lakefield” (2001), and “In All Things” (2004).

“In All Things,” the group’s third release, takes the listener on a fascinating journey across different genres and musical cultures. Instrumental pieces like “Pointe Au Pic Medley,” “Wedding Day Jig,” and “Chasing Rain,” reflect, respectively, the band’s Quebecois influences, their Celtic roots, and an element of step dancing that is always key to the live Leahy experience. Vocal numbers range from dramatic pieces like “High Places,” through bright, melodic pop songs like “Coyote,” to the haunting ballad “I Want You to Know.”      
Known for their exceptional musicianship, electrifying step dancing, and passion to perform, Leahy was the subject of the Academy Award-winning documentary film “Music Most of All.” The group has received multiple Juno Awards, and they are the best-selling group on the Virgin Canada label. The group proves that a musical style defying easy definition can find a large and wide audience. Donnell Leahy says, “It is liberating to see that there are no boundaries. Over the course of a year, we perform at jazz, bluegrass, country and Celtic festivals…it works every time.”
Individual tickets to Leahy are $30 and $20 for adults; $23 and $15 for students and senior citizens; and $10 and $6 for ASU students.

Fowler Center’s “Build your own season” package includes tickets to any four events for $100 and $65 for adults, and $75 and $45 for senior citizens and students. ASU students may purchase “Build your own season” tickets for $30 and $20.
