McLeod Nine 

McLeod Nine, the Swingy, Stringy, Funky, Folky duo from Texas, plays, jiggy, jazzy, gorgeous acoustic music, with roots deep in their Americana and Celtic past and a backbeat straight from the roots of swing and string-band soul. Their award-winning songwriting(Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk finalists, and Americana Fest, Nacogdoches winner)  is front and center in their shows and draws from a deep well of musical and life experience. Gordon and Christy McLeod’s music is nothing if not eclectic, spanning a wide range of musical worlds from swing and Django jazz to Americana and alternative folk, even Irish, Cajun and American fiddle tunes. Most of all, McLeod Nine want their audiences to be energized, inspired and to have fun ! (For example, One of the highlights of their shows is Christy getting the audience to dance a simple Irish Ceili dance.)

Gordon and Christy McLeod’s eclectic music spans a wide range of worlds including Americana, Celtic, Folk, Irish,  Swing and Django-jazz,  Bluegrass and Cajun. In a world of trendy and ever narrowing genres, McLeod Nine’s shows offer a refreshingly varied pallet of styles and textures.  While the roots of their musical tree are the  American and Celtic  traditions , the branches cover a wide patch of ground strewn with multi-colored leaves of blues, jazz, and even classical hues. Christy says ” We want to make sure in our shows that the next song is always something different from the last one!”
