ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Prince Edward Island’s musical ambassadors Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys are celebrating the release of their new album, Laugh, Dance & Sing.

Produced by Dale Murray, Laugh, Dance & Sing features 13 original songs and traditional tunes that excel in demonstrating the group’s infectious high-energy flair, crisp musicianship and rollicking rhythm and roots sound. The quartet rocks a signature style that infuses their love of traditional bluegrass and old-time roots music together to deliver an eclectic wardrobe of tunes that’s as unique and entertaining as they are.

Gordie MacKeeman (fiddle, cello, acoustic guitar, feet percussion, vocals), Peter Cann (guitars, banjo, vocals), Thomas Webb (guitars, bass, banjo, steel guitar, vocals) and Mark Geddes (bass, percussion, mandolin, piano) weave together a refreshing mix of invigorating songs, traditional-leaning ideas, and modern influences infused with solid instrumentation, rockabilly-inspired rhythms and toe tapping reels - all polished by MacKeeman's stunning fiddle work.

Gracing stages from Canada to the United Kingdom, from the United States to Belgium, Malaysia, India and Australia, The Rhythm Boys are renowned for their high-energy exhilarating live show, jaw-dropping stagecraft and showmanship. They have graced the stage at the legendary Glastonbury Festival, Celtic Connections, WOMAD, Orkney Folk Festival, Shrewsbury Folk Festival and the Woodford Folk Festival, and received the Galaxie Super Nova Award at the Ottawa Folk Festival (in 2012) for their outstanding high-energy performance. Whether it is performing on a grand festival stage or in an intimate concert hall, the powerhouse group has the magnetic ability to bring audiences to their feet causing standing ovations where ever they go.

With flashes of flair and fancy footwork, and a blatant disregard for predictable stage presence, Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys deliver an ultimate concert experience filled with high-energy electrifying entertainment. 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 The Rhythm Boys deliver surefooted roots instrumentation to accompany the spectacle.

With a growing list of notable achievements and glowing reviews from media and audiences around the world, The Rhythm Boys were recently honoured with the 2015 Music PEI Award for Entertainer of the Year and Touring Artist of the Year. Their album, Pickin n’ Clickin’ was awarded the 2014 East Coast Music Award and Music PEI Award for Roots Traditional Group Recording of the Year.

Join along for an unforgettable experience and Laugh, Dance and Sing with Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys.
“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, BBC Radio 2, UK

“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
