The Courtiers are a Portsmouth based four piece acoustic folk band. They draw on traditional music influences from both sides of the Atlantic to create a lively and eclectic mix of foot-stomping sounds.
Regulars within their local folk scene and various festivals, they are known for their energy, musicianship and entertaining banter (not to mention their secret weapon, the foot-based percussive wizardry that leaves audiences both tapping their feet and scratching their heads!)

Simon Cattermole – Bouzouki, 5-string banjo, vocals
Chris Gatland – Guitar, percussion, vocals.
