Think of the Scruggs style banjo playing, the soulful sound of Tammy Wynette or the growl of Johnny Cash. First formed in 1964, the Down County Boys are the UK’s longest established Bluegrass Band. During that time there have been many musicians pass through the ranks but all with great talent.
The band includes Peter Parker on the fiddle, Mick Cooper as lead singer and bass player, Chris Cooper on banjo and Ray Duffy who with his brother were voted “Top British Country Duo” in the International Country Music awards no less than 7 years running.
