Who am I?
I am a professional musician with a wide range of skills, interests, and abilities.
It is difficult for me to sit still because of the myriad thoughts and melodies
running through my mind at any given moment.
I fold origami to focus my energy.
The pieces are a convenient icebreaker and
Creating them keeps me tied to a place long enough to get comfortable.
Once I feel comfortable in a given situation or space
I can think about producing sound and creating music.
I strive to make music with anyone and every genre.
I enjoy putting myself in new social situations,
which gives some explanation for my sociology degree.
The rest is that my life has been a series of social experiments.
I have been known for presenting things without context,
Which is usually because too much context can be confusing and distracting.
I have been refining my context and this is it:
My name is Kelsey Leahy and I am exceedingly useful.
I am known as Vagabond Oboist and Origami Mami
and I like to help out where I can.
I show up and I do things.
I believe in kindness and that
Every breath is an opportunity.
I have a great deal of patience.
I make my own reeds.
It’s tedious, but I love it.
I sell the reeds to my students and
I’m always accepting those willing to learn.
