Gordie MacKeeman exemplifies the term natural showman. An ace fiddle player nicknamed “crazy legs” for his frenetic loose-limbed step- dancing, he just loves to perform. Combine that exuberance and onstage dynamism with the stellar musicianship of his multi-instrumentalist comrades His Rhythm Boys, and you have an unstoppable roots music force. That potent combination has made the group highly sought-after performers on the international roots music circuit, thrilling audiences from Adelaide, Australia, to Edinburgh, Scotland.

The fact that each member of the band is skilled on multiple instruments gives Gordie MacKeeman and The Rhythm Boys a high-powered musical arsenal. The result is an eclectic signature sound that draws upon bluegrass, old time country, folk, rockabilly, swing, Celtic, and other styles in genre-defying fashion.

“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, host of ‘The Folk Show’, BBC Radio 2

Looking for a night out for the whole family? This all-singing, all-dancing act is also a great introduction to the world of folk music for children aged 7+.

Please note that this event will now take place in the Carole Nash Hall.
