Gordie MacKeeman (2015)

Gordie_on_BassThe blurb on the WOMADelaide site for 2015 describes Canadian visitors GORDIE MacKEEMAN & HIS RHYTHM BOYS thus:  “Untamed, old-time bluegrass delivered with wild, high-spirited revelry that conjures an irresistible urge to kick up your legs and dance. Driven by the breakneck 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.”

The music also includes elements of other styles such as gypsy, which is explored in this interview conducted with Michael Hunter on January 27 2015, along with the importance of the fiddle in tradition, his ideal band and more.
