Born in Bathurst, New Brunswick Canada, Leroy played guitar for many years before his first gig in St. Cloud, Minnesota, USA in 1970. Not long after that, he moved to the United States for good, settling in Sauk Rapids, MN.
In the early 2000s, Leroy became the house guitarist and musical director for the Midwest Country Theater show. This show aired around the world on satellite TV station RFD-TV, and Leroyâs name became a household world in some very diverse households.
The influence of Chet Atkins is obvious in Leroyâs playing, but he also brought his own ideas into the mix and drew inspiration from the great Brazilian guitarists. His personal contribution to the history of guitar music could perhaps be measured by the care he placed in every noteâalways the right note, always the right time. And the sweet tones he drew from his handmade guitar could make any singer sound like a star.
And he did work with some singers. From Tommy Cash (brother of Johnny) to Ray Price and George Jones. Not to mention the host of talented artists appearing on the stage of the Midwest Country Theater, such as Becky Schlegel, John Rex Reeves and Bobby Bare.
Joe Savage, one of Minnesotaâs premiere pedal steel guitar players and a member of the Midwest Country Theater house band, said Leroy âcould do things that I have never seen anybody do the guitar. His fingers would just fly.â The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Leroy âwas much loved by audiences and fellow players for his classic country-western tunes.â
Leroy passed away from cancer in July 2008. He was 66. His gift to the world was music, and his music is now available for the first time on a two-CD set from Lilly Ray Records: Leroy Glazier, Instrumental Guitar Music Volumes 1 & 2.
