Laugh, dance and sing, exhort the lively band Gordie MacKeeman And His Rhythm Boys from the Canadian eastern seaboard. The band’s third album bears that very title: Laugh, Dance & Sing (2015), and that express concisely what this group are aiming at. Gordie MacKeeman is a masterly fiddler and showman. He is also known as Crazy Legs on account of his step dancing talents. Gordie MacKeeman And His Rhythm Boys are a high-octane combo who purvey both traditional and their own songs and compositions. The style is influenced by Canadian and Scots traditional music, bluegrass and western swing, and the sound comprises violin, banjo, guitar, double bass, percussion and plenty of singing.

Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys have won an impressive array of prizes in their homeland and have delighted audiences at festivals like Glastonbury, Celtic Connections, Orkney Folk Festival and Ottawa Folk Festival. Now: Tønder Festival. Your only chance to hear them at a Danish festival in the summer of 2018.
