21 January: The Countrymen
It’s difficult to find a musical genre that would fully describe The Countrymen but ‘Cornish Folk Rock Harmony’ is reasonably close.
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 an increasing repertoire of 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.
They’re well known for performing at some of the best festivals in the south west, including Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival, Bridport Folk Festival, Rock Oyster Festival, Looe Saves The Day, Little Orchard Cider Festival, Pandafest, Falmouth Oyster Festival and Falmouth Week.
The boys are looking forward to another warm Calstock welcome and we’re looking forward to having them. They’ll be performing many of the songs from their new album (if it exists by then)!
