The Congo Cowboys: music that draws on the foot stompin qualities of bluegrass country, reimagined through Kwassa Kwassa African rhythms and Soukous guitar.

The Congo meets the Deep South in a gritty exploration of Americana and ol’ timey ditties. Banjo and bluesy bass lines from boys in boots. It’s fire and hell, whisky and ribs, murder in the pines…

The Congo Cowboys have just returned from a fantastic European Tour – performing on festival stages across Germany, Holland, Czech Republic and Switzerland. Our local summer season is already starting to look busy, with shows and weddings booked through March 2024.
