For more than a few people the only mental recording they will have of country music is that classic riff from Deliverance – you know the one I’m talking about.
Country and folk music however actually covers an incredibly wide array different sounds and instruments. Whether you like the banjo-twanging sounds of the American South or the haunting melodies but foot stamping rhythms from Ireland there will be something that will appeal to you. Country is something very aptly named; the sounds and songs come from the people of the countryside, and somehow from the very soul of the country. There is nothing more full of emotion and the ability to move you than a fine country song, whatever its provenance.
Classical music snobs may turn their noses up at a perceived lack of refinement, punks and rockers may life at the sensibility and soul of country music, but the true music fan can appreciate the beauty to be found in all forms of music, and there is a huge amount in the world of folk music.
Incidentally, we would like to claim in writing that we have coined the term for music from Cornwall and surrounding areas that sounds similar in nature to that from the American South – ‘West Country and Western’. NB
