Canterbury Fair, an Australian group which specialises in British Isles folksongs, is another line-up of great singers including Danny Spooner. It is effectively a follow-up LP to Danny Spooner and Friends. This is even better, relying more on vocal technique and harmony to produce beautiful songs mostly in a cappella style. They do use some very subdued musical backing occasionally.
