Next Gen­er­a­tion Leahy

Build­ing on over three gen­er­a­tions of Leahy mu­si­cian­ship, Doug Leahy, to­gether with his wife Jennifer and their chil- dren, are keep­ing those tra­di­tions alive through mu­sic, song, and dance.

Doug, as a mem­ber of Leahy and Jennifer, hav­ing played mu­sic through­out her life, both un­der­stand the joy and ex­hil­a­ra­tion only mu­sic can pro­vide. Even the small­est chil­dren feel the mu­sic puls­ing through their veins. They are drawn to it. They are pas­sion­ate about it. Ap­pear­ing in the Met­calfe Cen­tre on Satur­day, Aug. 5, from 3-4:45 p.m.

Bang on the Ear

Bang On The Ear has en­ter­tained au­di­ences all over North Amer­ica since the band's for­ma­tion in 2007. Fronted by hus­band and wife, Bradley and Michelle McMillan, they built a strong fol­low­ing plac­ing em­pha­sis on com­bin­ing the sounds of tra­di­tional Irish mu­sic and fus­ing it with Folk, Rock, and that Glen­garry County sound that has made the area's mu­sic so pop­u­lar over the past 50 years. Their Live en­ergy is one that must be cap­tured live. They have had their mu­sic fea­tured on ra­dio, in­ter­net ra­dio and pod­casts all over the world. They have played for Cana­dian and world dignitaries, Top Chefs, T.V. celebri­ties and more from around the world. Ap­pear­ing in the tent on Satur­day, Aug. 5, from 7:30-8:30 p.m.

Fridge Full of Emp­ties

The ‘ Emp­ties’ were formed one late night at the Alexan­dria Curl­ing Club back in the win­ter of 2004. Mark Hall pulled out his gui­tar, started play­ing and Paul Vil­leneuve be­gan singing… and that was the be­gin­ning of a friend­ship that soon de­vel­oped into Glen­garry’s very own Fridge Full of Emp­ties. Of course ac­cor­dion vir­tu­oso Nel­son MacPherson was there from the very be­gin­ning. With his incredible tal­ent and calm de­meanour, Nel­son’s wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence on stage was a per­fect fit for this trio.

Over the years many tal­ented mu­si­cians have shared the stage with ‘The Fridge’; to­day An­drew Munro and fid­dle player ex­traor­di­naire Kelsey Du­val round out the band. Ap­pear­ing in the tent on Satur­day, Aug. 5, from 8:45-10 p.m.

Neil Em­berg

As the front­man for the ev­er­pop­u­lar Celtic-Rock group Hadrian's Wall, Neil Em­berg's strong vo­cals, taste­ful gui­tar play­ing and charm­ing stage pres­ence can be ap­pre­ci­ated from the front seat at a pub venue to the back of 10,000 at a fes­ti­val event. Ap­pear­ing in the Met­calfe Cen­tre on Satur­day, Aug. 5, from 5-6 p.m.
