For their third Australian tour, multi award-winning Canadian bluesgrass act, Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys are set to bring some "CrazyLegs" magic to premier folk festivals and venues across the country this March.

Amongst Nannup, Port Fairy, Yackandandah, Blue Mountains and The National Folk Festival appearances, Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys are performing at venues across Western Australia, Victoria and New South Wales, 1-31 March.

One of the most sought-after performers on the international roots music circuit right now, Gordie and the boys enthrall with their exceptional musicianship and exuberant, highly entertaining onstage antics - often involving the ace fiddler's renowned step dancing aptly earning him the nickname, 'Crazy Legs'.

From Glastonbury and WOMAD to Celtic Connections, Orkney and Woodford Folk Festival, this electrifying, 'Entertainer of the Year' winning four-piece continue to delight audiences at major international festivals across the globe.

Celebrated recording as well as live performance guns, Gordie MacKeeman and The Rhythm Boys bring a high-powered musical arsenal with a  signature sound that draws upon bluegrass, old time country, folk, rockabilly, swing, Celtic, and more.

Able to play 12 instruments between them, the live show is where it's at for the skilled showmen Gordie, Peter, Thomas and Jason, “We just love being onstage in front of an audience. We view our albums as a souvenir of the live show, so we record live off the floor as much as possible,” says Gordie.

The Gordie MacKeeman and The Rhythm Boys 2018 Australian Tour starts 1 March in Western Australia before hitting Victoria, New South Wales and wrapping up in Canberra at the National Folk Festival 30 March-1 April.

“Driven by the break-neck speed of Gordie “Crazy Legs” MacKeeman’s supernatural fiddlin’ and frenetic, high-kicking dancing, this quartet creates a roots music meltdown fuelled by jaw-dropping stagecraft and showmanship.”
