Gordie MacKeeman exemplifies the term natural showman. An ace fiddle player nicknames "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.
"This band is a real breath of fresh air and fun. Given the generic 'roots' label, there are heavy influences of bluegrass, western swing, Celtic and even Scottish country dance music in here. It all adds up to a mighty fine package." - Maverick Magazine, UK
