McLeod Nine, the dynamic man-woman duo from Texas, plays swingy, stringy, funky, folky acoustic music, with roots deep in their Americana past and a backbeat straight from the gut traditions of blues, swing and string-band soul. Their award-winning songwriting 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 gypsy 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!
