It’s difficult to find a musical genre that would fully describe The Countrymen, but Folk Rock Harmony comes close.
A five-piece band featuring tight four-part vocal harmony and strong instrumentation. Primarily performing original songs and their own arrangements of lesser-known contemporary folk, the band’s lyrical inspiration is drawn from life in Cornwall, the demise of local industries and other rural issues that resonate throughout the country. The Countrymen are accomplished performers, engaging the audience with light-hearted banter and back-stories to their songs.

The Countrymen perform up to 50 live gigs per year including spring and autumn concert tours, festivals and other folk events. These include Little Orchard Festival, Rock Oyster Festival, Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival, Falmouth Oyster Festival and Falmouth Week.

They’ve also appeared at Looe Saves The Day, supporting Paul Young’s Los Pacaminos, headlined at Bridport Folk Festival and are looking forward to appearing at Bie Diap in The Netherlands, Europe’s largest folk and sea song festival. More recently, The Countrymen have been shortlisted for Glastonbury’s Pilton Stage 2024.
The Countrymen have also made several appearances on Westcountry Television, BBC Radio Cornwall and numerous online folk radio stations.
To date, the band have released two albums, Trees on the Hill and The River Rolls On, both available on CD and all major streaming/download sites. They are currently working on a third album to be released later in the year.
