Songs of Experience has been tackled by several folk artists over the years, but I've yet to hear a version of 'The Little Vagabond' that betters this one:

Does anyone know of any other good versions of Blake's poems?

The Fugs did arrangements of AH, SUNFLOWER, WEARY OF TIME;
AUGURIES OF INNOCENCE,
and HOW SWEET I ROAM'D FROM FIELD TO FIELD.

The following albums seem (by their song titles) to consist entirely of Blake poems set to music:

Greg Brown, "Songs of Innocence and of Experience"

Jude Cowan, "Lamb & Tyger"

Billy Blake and the Vagabonds, "Billy Blake and the Vagabonds."

Finn Coren, "Spring: The Appendix ? The Blake Project"

All these can be heard on Spotify. If you search there for some of his titles, I think you'll find more.

I haven't listened to all of these, so I can't testify that they're "good"--but I remember being fascinated by The Fugs way back when I was a college student, because they were so far outside the mainstream.
