The Countrymen are a Cornish Folk Rock Harmony Group from Launceston.
Six middle-aged musicians with tight four-part harmony vocals and a token Cornishman. With a relaxed and light-hearted presentation style they take the audience on a journey through the history and culture of Cornwall, featuring their own arrangements of traditional and contemporary songs, as well as some original material. Interspersed with the occasional pop cover to lighten the mood when required, there is no mistaking that to a man, they love their county with a passion.
Since the summer of 2017, they have been becoming increasingly popular across both Devon & Cornwall with appearances on both radio and TV and numerous festival appearances including The Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival, The Rock Oyster Festival, Falmouth Week and more recently, the main stage at Looe Saves The Day. They were also lined up for The Falmouth Oyster Festival before the weather had the last word.
“Absolutely love this band. Saw them for the first time at the St Agnes Lifeboat celebration in June and was blown away by the musicianship and beautiful harmonies. At times they were very exclusive and original and at other times derivative but still brilliant. They reminded me at times of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and I would love to see them attempt "Teach Your Children" but their take on some traditional Cornish songs was uplifting and poignant at the same time. A wonderful night's entertainment. I very much look forward to seeing them again (and again). Thanks guys, much appreciated." David Simons
