Type "english folk music" into youtube & see what you get! It is appalling! We must stop being so bloody insular & put some of our "stuff" out there, yes there is plenty out there is you use artists surnames etc. but we seem to be afraid to use the "f" word.
So to find anything you need to be in the know in the first place.

There is quite a lot of English folk music on YouTube. Two more examples.

The Keys of Canterbury

The performers had to go across the Bristol Channel for this; and if they picked it up from where I did (The Byrds), across the Atlantic too!

Thinking about it, I have actually heard the documentary that links it back to the guy writing a 20th Century poem based upon the traditional Oranges & Lemons. I'd forgotten the Pete Seeger connection though.

This version of Sir Patrick Spens is rather good. Sadly, almost all other folk music that I have found on YouTube save from known past or present professional singers is truly dreadful.

"Type "english folk music" into youtube"
Well, that's just mainly a problem of unimaginative selection of keywords by people who put stuff on YouTube.

Here's a couple more examples that don't come up under that search key, but I can assure you they're English
(OK, there's a Welsh tune in there too...)
Try THIS or THIS

Forgive me if I've missed the point but aren't sites like YouTube meant to be anything-goes chatrooms with pics and video? I didn't think the point was entertainment or excellence of any sort. this thread seems to be suggesting some sort of elitist quality control.

Try some of Sarah Macmillan's videos of Whitby Folk Festival. Could somebody please do a blue clicky? I'm useless at these.

Or could it not be a manifestation of the growing feeling that the word "f*lk" needs binning forthwith? It is a term so terminally damaged that it is applied (and especially so by the pubic at large) to any old MOR dross ranging from faded pub rockers to anyone who once knew someone who lived next door to the erstwhile owner of an acoustic guitar.

English musicians prefer increasingly to describe their music as "trad" or "indie" to put as much distance as possible between the tie-dye and sandal-clad thrashers, bashers, whiners and fey warblers who perpetuate the myth that trad music and dance is necessarily amateurish and naff.

Hi, there is plenty out there but you have to type in the right keywords to find it "That is my point" we are putting things on the net for the converted, we seem to be scared to use the phrase "english folk music".
If I want to find Vin Garbutt, I can, Harvey Andrews, easy etc.
but to come across what we do by accident & therefore share it is very difficult to say the least.
I have receently changed jobs, I work in a huge company but shara a workshop with only 2 others, 1 is a Folkie (concerts only) the other is time warped in the 70s, both by the way are really fine poeple to spend time with & VERY good at what they do. One can find what we do by typing the right names, the other if he goes on the net get "greensleeves". So he thinks greensleeves is what we do.
Mostly because we are scared to use the word English & Folk so search engines will not find it on youtube.

Who said folkies had no sense of humour? The Fast Show parody is done by people with a genuine love of the stuff, and a despair for the creeping idiocy that would ever take offence at such an accurate & affectionate send up. And in no way shape or form is it racist; folk music being a hobbyist concern of but a tiny minority of the 70 million (or so) citizens currently resident in the British Isles and not a manifestation of the ethnicity of same.

Part of the problem is not what we call it but what other users mean by it. I've not searched under English Folk Music for well over a year as what it bought back was any video that had English, Folk or music in the title (trying to search for phrases then didn't seem to work - or at least I couldn't get it to work). For this reason the stuff I've loaded to my channel isn't tagged with English at all.

YouTube indexing is not just limited to the title of the piece or the tags that are entered when the video is posted, but also includes the descriptive text which appears under the "More info..." link. So, being eminently narcisstic, I checked my own channel to see what came up under the "folk" keyword - up came several, including this one, The Cuckoo's Nest , which does not have the word "folk" in the tags (I used "traditional" instead). It came up because I'd used the phrase "folk dance" in the description. Best to remember that YouTube indexing is basic and unsophisticated and will throw up all sorts of weird and wonderful things.
