It’s difficult to find a musical genre that would fully describe The Countrymen but Cornish Folk Rock Harmony is reasonably close.

Here's how they describe themselves:

"Five seasoned musicians with tight four-part harmony vocals and a token Cornishman. With a relaxed and light-hearted presentation style we take the audience on a journey through the history and culture of Cornwall, featuring our own arrangements of traditional and contemporary songs, as well as an increasing amount of our own compositions. Interspersed with the occasional pop cover to lighten the mood when required, there is no mistaking that to a man, we love our county with a passion.

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

"We have been fortunate to have performed at some great festivals including Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival, Bridport Folk Festival, Looe Saves The Day, Little Orchard Cider Festival, Falmouth Oyster Festival and Falmouth Week. We have also built up a circuit of venues for our concert dates and will be touring again in 2022".
