McLeod Nine is Gordon and Christy McLeod, performing together since the late 90's and have been hailed as one of the most diverse, exciting and entertaining acts in the music scene. Their unique mix of original and traditional songs and instrumental selections on violin, guitar, mandolins and keyboard spans a wide range of musical worlds. From Celtic to Cajun, Beatles to Bluegrass, Americana/Roots to Texas & Euro Swing, and including some Classical and Sacred selections, McLeod Nine offers listeners an ever-changing tapestry of warm, exciting and inviting music.

McLeod Nine's eclectic and energetic sound covers a broad range of intriguing material, from string jazz with a gypsy flavor to inspiring original songs with lots of energy and musical spice to traditional Irish fiddle tunes and music from the string ensemble tradition. Gordon and Christy are well known as founders and performers in the very popular Americana-Celtic-Roots band, Beyond The Pale, and as founders of the elegant string ensemble, The Aisling String Trio. They have $ CD's, "Swingy Stringy Funky Folky", "Daddy G & His Amazing Swingtet", "Dog Year" and "Just Fiddlin' " and have recorded 7 CD's with Beyond The Pale, and 1 CD of Celtic/Classical with The Aisling String Trio.

Gordon is always searching for the true soul of any music he plays. He plays a number of instruments; as a fiddler he is equally at home with jazz and folk styles as well as authentic traditional Irish fiddling. Gordon is also well known as a guitarist and for playing mandolin, clarinet and several other instruments. He in demand as a recording session artist, producer, and live performer. Beside his work with Beyond The Pale and The Aisling String Trio, Gordon is a featured violinist with The Texas Gypsies. Gordon is an award winning songwriter as well having won the 2008 Americana Songwriting competition in Nacogdoches for his song "Dog Year". Gordon's original songs have been licensed for independent film and television projects as well as being included on numerous compilations.

Christy McLeod has been called “a fun seeking missile” for good reason. She radiates warmth and energy and conveys a love of life through her singing and playing that is infectious, igniting spontaneous human happiness whenever she performs. Her clear sweet voice is the prefect match for her powerful guitar style. Having played many styles for most of her life, her creative song renditions, whether her own compositions or covers of other great songs, never fail to captivate and inspire her audiences. Christy is also a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, mandolin, percussion and harmonica and is an accomplished songwriter, having penned several songs performed by The McLeods and Beyond The Pale including the title track to Beyond The Pale's 2006 Album "The Music Plays Me".

McLeod Nine played at our home for a 40th birthday party. Christy kept us up-to-date with all necessary details prior to the party. They came in and set up professionally and entertained our large group for the evening. We hired the duo in particular because they play wonderful Celtic and bluegrass. Christy even taught our group of all ages some Celtic dancing. After, they played a variety of music. I recommend them highly!

I am very impressed with the level of talent Mcleod Nine possesses. I have hired many bands and entertainers over the course of my 15 year career and they are in my top 3 favorite performers ever! My Assisted Living & Memory Care Community is a senior living community age 65+ and their performance got them all dancing and singing along. They were absolutely high energy and are just phenomenal entertainers and we will be hiring them again! I would recommend this band for any age group, venue or event, I was completely engaged in their performance throughout the evening! And on a side note, Christy and Gordon are great to talk to! Just an enjoyable evening!
