Well if I was washed up with a guitar I wouldn't want or need a recording or electricity. Enough stuff is ingrained on my mind but for variety I'd make something new.

If Percy Grainger had the wit to record Joseph Taylor in 1905, why didn't Cecil Sharp to back and record John England's Seeds of Love which had so inspired him a couple of years earlier? Or maybe he did?

I think for me it would have to be an early Watersons track, or something by the Voice Squad. I'm struggling to choose just one by either, though ...

I have a lot of tunes and songs in my head that I would always have for company. But with both of those groups, the intertwining of the voices in harmony just thrills me every time I hear them, and I don't think I'd ever tire of them.

Can't pick just one because it depends on my mood from day to day....

But today's favourite is a vintage half century old recording
that sounds near enough to 'folk' for me:
and I sincerely challenge Bellowhead to do a storming live cover version..

This song was destined to be sung by Jon Boden !!!

I would not be able to pick just ONE... but Northerner's choice of "Jeannie Robertson - My Son David" is about as close as anything....as are several by Davy Stewart..(like "The Merchant's Son and the Beggar's Daughter")

These are never fair questions.

let her go is just a variation of o no john, and is sung as if the singer is being dictated to by the[so called] accompanying instruments, each to their own, but if i was stuck alone on a desert island with only that, i would throw it in the sea

WiFi coverage on the island probably wouldn't be good enough for Youtube anyway.......???

Still think Bellowhead should cover it ....

or even better, do it as a duet with Joe Brown himself


Ps, if I'd been in an even more mischievous mood
I might have suggested Anthony Newley - "Strawberry Fair"

Let her go is based on The Keeper -

Master
Sing ye well?
Very well
Hey down
Ho down
Derry derry down
Among the leaves so green-o.

No, I don't think I could handle that.
Until the batteries ran out, my little old cassette player could play Silly sisters for me. Or The High Level Ranters or Watersons. If I knew in advance I could put them all on one tape and enjoy the lot - till the batteries died.

Homeward Bound by the Boston Revels. http://store.revels.org/homewardbound.aspx That's what I'd choose today, anyway!
On any day, it would be trad music, probably sea music, and probably with vocal harmonies--lots of voices.
