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 3 CD's, Daddy G & His Amazing Swingtet, Dog Year and Just Fiddlin' and have recorded 7 CD's as 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".

So happy we found the Mcleod Nine for our wedding! They were able to work with us despite the fact that my wedding was a last minute affair and halfway across Texas! They made our outdoor wedding come to life with beautiful and joyful celtic (with some country and folk) music. They were highly professional, extremely talented musicians, and have wonderful friendly attitudes. My wedding would not have been the same without them, and I feel like we got really lucky finding them! I highly recommend them!

McLeod Nine performed at our outdoor reception and dinner for our event in Irving. The music was wonderful and we heard nothing but excellent feedback from our attendees. All communication prior to the event was seamless and they were very easy to work with and quick to respond.
