About this event
There’s no other band around like Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys.
Led by fiddling wiz Gordie “Crazylegs” MacKeeman, the roots quartet features all-star pickers and singers, with everything from down-home country to reckless rockabilly to intricate bluegrass. Now the boys are back with their latest release, Dreamland.
Crowds all over the world stare in awe as Gordie plays with joyful abandonment. Onlookers report Gordie and the Boys to be festival highlights time and time again, mostly due to the elastic legged band leader as he demonstrates his unique blend of Canadian clogging and step dancing.
Since their inception, they have collected a mantle-full of awards and recognitions. And while their records are tremendous, it’s their exhilarating live show that keeps people coming back time and time again, and leaving with the same wonder and amazement.
“A fantastically joyful ensemble, that whip up a storm of rockabilly influenced country; and wow – Gordie’s dancing is something to behold, as all the band locked into a ferocious hoedown!” ~ Cambridge Folk Festival Review
