Prince Edward Island has been sponsoring some of the best homegrown music parties for a few centuries now, and fiddle phenom Gordie MacKeeman & His Rhythm Boys are the latest in that proud lineage of bands performing spirited, hand-crafted music. This rollicking quartet do a flawless job of drawing from the Irish, Scottish, bluegrass, and western swing traditions in a freewheeling manner that is guaranteed to get any audience hopping. Take a listen to this cut from the band’s brand new album, “Laugh, Dance & Sing”

gordie-MacKeemanIntoxicating fun!

Featuring fiddle, vocals, bass, drums, percussion, mandolin, banjo, guitar, and pedal steel guitar, these four award-winning musicians have delighted audiences as far away as England’s legendary Glastonbury Festival and at premier venues in Malaysia and Australia. (According to Britain’s Maverick Magazine, “This band is a real breath of fresh air and fun . . . it all adds up to a mighty fine package.”) They know their traditional country-dance reels as well as anyone, but don’t be surprised to hear some rockabilly rhythms and original songs alongside classics like Black Velvet Waltz. And all that virtuoso musicianship is bolstered by foot-stomping energy, great stagecraft, and an intoxicating spirit of fun. If you’ve ever wanted to be a guest at an authentic East Coast kitchen party, here’s your chance!
