Biography

Previously referred to as the Leahy Family, this Celtic pop group from Lakefield, Ontario, features nine Leahy siblings — from oldest to youngest: singer/songwriter Julie, bassist Siobheann, fiddler Donnell, guitarist Maria, drummer Frank, pianist Agnes, fiddler Doug, pianist Erin, and fiddler Angus. The siblings, with their parents (Frank and Julie) and two additional siblings who dropped to go after music professionally, started performing through the 1970s, creating a special style informed not merely by Celtic customs but additionally Canadian folk and French-Canadian stage dance. The family’s recognition soared once the music artists were the main topic of the Academy Award-winning 1985 college student film The Leahy’s: Music Primarily, but real life concerns like college, careers, and relationship ultimately relegated the Leahy Family’s shows to special events. By the middle-’90s, however, the kids had developed and made a decision to switch professional. Dubbing themselves basically Leahy, they released their eponymous debut LP on Narada in 1997. They toured with Shania Twain the next year and continuing releasing albums in to the early 2000s.

#Quote
1 We need to consider nominations as thoroughly and carefully as the American people deserve. No one is entitled to a free pass to a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.
2 Why do the President and Vice-President constantly change the subject when asked to explain why things are going so badly in Iraq? The answer is simple. They have been consistently wrong about Iraq, and the results speak for themselves.
3 There have been 111 Justices in the Supreme Court of the United States. Only three have been women. If she is confirmed, Solicitor General Kagan will bring the Supreme Court to an historical high-water mark, with three women concurrently serving as Justices.
4 A victim is a victim is a victim. We should stop setting up standards that say we will have one standard of law enforcement for one group of victims but not for another.
5 Judiciary is where my passion is.
6 I'm an old trial lawyer.
7 A lot of people in my state of Vermont are gun owners.
8 You get fifteen democrats in a room, and you get twenty opinions.
9 Our alliances and our credibility are crucial elements of our working capital in advancing America's interests in the world, and they have been eroded over the last four years.
10 The American public is sick and tired of being lied to.
11 The rights of copyright holders need to be protected, but some draconian remedies that have been suggested would create more problems than they would solve.
12 Stealing is stealing. I don't care if it's on the Internet or you're breaking into a warehouse somewhere - it's theft.
13 I'm a gun owner.
