Saw Porterhouse several times at Barry Folk Club (now on about its 4th or 5th incarnation). They were, as stated above, wonderful. Only got one album by them - "Bide Lady Bide" Cambrian Recordings MCT216 -which I still drag out and sing along to from time to time.

I have championed one or two of these before I know but if you can find their stuff check out A Filetta from Corsica (well known in France), Rustavi Choir, Journalist, Mtiebi (sang with one of them a couple of weeks ago)and Mzetamze from Georgia, Trio Bulgarka and Les Mysteres de les Voix Bulgares from Bulgaria (not all unaccompanied but worth a visit harmonywise) and, of course, the output from Northern Harmony in Vermont USA who collect stuff from all over the world and put considerable effort into performing it properly.

And if you get a chance to sing with any of them . . . take it.
