‘Gordie and the boys are great players, sharp songwriters, invigorating company… not to mention the nifty dancing. Frankly, what’s not to like?’ ~ Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
Hailing from the remote Prince Edward Island in Canada, the award-winning Gordie MacKeeman & His Rhythm Boys serve up old-time roots music with an energy level that practically yanks you out of your seat by the collar.
Having won the coveted Galaxy Supernova Award at the 2012 Ottawa Folk Festival for outstanding live performance, if ever someone was deserving of the nickname ‘Crazy Legs’, it is Gordie MacKeeman. His thrilling dance style mixed with great bluegrass vocals, Peter Cann’s blistering guitar solos, and the lively multi-instrumental talents of Thomas Webb and Mark Geddes, make for an unforgettable live experience.
