Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys (Canada)

For over a decade Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys have been regularly picking up awards and building a solid reputation as an audience-igniting live band with their high-octane mix of intricate bluegrass, feel-good old-time melodies and reckless rockabilly. Leading the charge is elastic figure of fiddler, Gordie MacKeeman, nicknamed ‘Crazylegs’ for his loose-limbed dancing and ability to step-dance out high-speed rhythms without detracting from his virtuoso fiddling, more than ably assisted by long-time compadres, the Rhythm Boys, featuring the assured picking of guitarist Peter Cann with Thomas Webb on bass and banjo and Jason Burbine on drums. With an irresistibly infectious energy, the tight-knit combo has been sweeping up admirers of all nations on stages of all sizes in varied venues and major festivals worldwide from Tønder to Womad, Glastonbury to Merlefest and more.
