With a slight bend of his knee, Gordie MacKeeman launches into a song. Guided by the sharp cuts of his fiddle, his famous crazy legs shake and twist with a laughing regard for physics. The whole time, his Rhythm Boys deliver a surefooted roots instrumentation to accompany the spectacle. It’s a joyful sight that divides the line between the band and the audience. It is this pomp and spirit that Gordie MacKeeman & His Rhythm Boys set out to capture on their last album, Pickin’ n Clickin’. Their newest album, ‘Laugh, Sing and Dance’ was released in 2015.

Hailing from Prince Edward Island, The Rhythm Boys’ exhilarating live show instantly enamours audiences with their engaging, sometimes jaw-dropping, stagecraft and showmanship. With flavours of traditional bluegrass and roots music bolstered by their stunning musicianship, the group is poised to take the world stage. The band features Gordie MacKeeman (fiddle, feet, and vocals), Mark Geddes (bass, drums, percussion, mandolin, and banjo), Thomas Webb (vocals, banjo, guitar, pedal steel guitar, and bass) and Peter Cann (vocals and guitar).

‘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, The Folk Show, BBC Radio 2, UK
