Not Martin Carthy, sorry.

Davey Graham, definitely.

John Renbourn's more laidback recordings. Some of his more seriously technical pieces sound rushed, so what should be fluid is staccato and doesn't hold a rhythm, like he recorded it before he'd got it fully up to performance standard.

Not entirely folk, but Thomas Leeb is an unfeasibly brilliant fingerstyle guitarist. Technique via Eric Roche, but that technique is all going into making *music* instead of just being for the technique's sake. If you ever see him advertised near you, don't miss him.
