Subject: RE: best a capella groups
Young Tradition were the definition of the genre of unaccompanied English folk harmony. Watersons damn fine too.

More recently Jinx's Stack (a bit barber-shopy at times) - now I think re-formed and back with us.

But why has no-one mentioned Capella (yes spelt that way, which actually is another name for a she-goat)? They have a smashing sound with the male voice above the female - and Tony has recently been postinghere as Cap-or-ella.

And of course there was Ramskyte - a wall of sound with 5 part harmony.

And Joe Stead's new band, Kimber's Men, aren't they unaccompanied?
