Gordie Mackeeman & His Rhythm Boys
July 30 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| £8 - £16.50
Gordie MacKeeman – ace fiddle player (nicknamed ‘crazy legs’ for his frenetic loose-limbed step-dancing) just loves to perform. Combining exuberance and onstage dynamism with the stellar musicianship of his multi-instrumentalist comrades HIS Rhythm Boys, MacKeeman is an unstoppable roots music force.
Regularly delighting audiences over here at major festivals – e.g. Glastonbury, WOMAD, Celtic Connections, Hebridean Celtic, Cambridge – Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys, from Canada’s East coast Prince Edward Island, tour the world from Denmark to Australia – and now the international circuit includes All Of The Above at the Widcombe Social.
Gordie MacKeeman (fiddle, acoustic guitar, feet percussion, vocals), and His Rhythm Boys – Peter Cann (guitars, banjo, vocals), Thomas Webb (guitars, bass, banjo, steel guitar, vocals), and Jason Burbine (bass, percussion, guitar, vocals) – simply create a high-powered musical whirlwind. Their wild, eclectic sound draws on bluegrass, old time country, folk, rockabilly, swing and Celtic music – their live performances are inexhaustible, unstoppable fun,
encapsulated by their recent album title: Laugh, Dance, & Sing.
