The Countrymen

The Countrymen are a Cornish Folk Rock Harmony Group from Launceston.“If you get the chance to see these guys (The Countrymen) in concert then take it, you will not
be disappointed”   Harry Glasson

Five seasoned 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 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.

Now in their sixth year, 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, Bridport Folk Festival and Little Orchard Festival.

2023 will see the band take on a fourth concert tour of both Cornwall and Devon entitled “Bal Maiden” which is the track title to one of the new tracks for a third forthcoming album..

The band was formed from an Open Mic Night at their local, The Countryman Inn near Launceston, which is where the band’s name originates.  They soon found a mutual love of singing in harmony and almost accidentally developed a strong reputation for an emphasis on Cornishness in the repertoire.

In addition to offering quality live entertainment on stage, they have also been busy in the recording studio and have released three online EPs to date, Cornish Lads Vol.1, 2 and not unsurprisingly, Cornish Lads Vol.3.

They have also released two albums, “Trees On The Hill” and more recently, “The River Rolls On”.

“Fantastic band! Great harmonies and mix of music. Don’t miss them!” Guy McKensie

“Saw these guys on Saturday in the main street (Falmouth Shanty Festival). Great singing. Great banter”. Steve Prophet

“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
