The Countrymen are a six piece Cornish folk group. They perform songs about Cornwall Its heritage as a mining and fishing community and what it’s like to live there now.
The songs are usually in close, four part harmony with guitars and bass in support, but the accent is on fun and finding the good things about Cornwall. They tend to avoid the obvious songs like Lamorna’ and Camborne Hill’ and favour more modern contemporary songs as well as some original material written by the band.
There are occasional pop classics thrown in to up the tempo. This gives the performance a fresh and lively feel that has proved successful already at festivals in the county including The Newlyn Fish Festival, Falmouth Shanty Festival, Boscastle Music Festival and The World Pasty Championships at The Eden Project. They have also been heard on BBC Radio Cornwall on several occasions as well as appearing on the BBC Radio Cornwall stage at The Royal Cornwall Show this year.
The band have their first recordings on iTunes in the form of an EP, Cornish Lads Vol.1 and Vol.2 is not far away, following swiftly after with an album available also on CD.
