I'm not sure if John Jacob Niles would be considered a countertenor or not. He slides very easily from full voice to falsetto, and back again, and his falsetto is very sweet-sounding. He called himself a "mountain tenor."

The someone idiosyncratic and controversial John Jacob Niles.

This clip runs a little over two and a half minutes and then, for some reason, there is dead air from there on.
