The Harmony Boys have been performing since 1961. Through the years there have been different members but the group has tried to stay true to their name and provide a distinctive harmony. It is difficult to apply a particular genre to their music style. The group has a tinge of Bluegrass in some of their music but as you will find on the CD's, there is a variety of styles. It is the desire of the group that these songs be a blessing to you as you listen.
