I'd add to that, George,:-

Martyn Wyndham Read Jezz Lowe (altho most of his material is his own composition in a trditional style - whatever that means!) Martin Carthy & daughter John Kirkpatrick Johnny Handle (probably semi retired)

I concur with your comments about Dave Burland - a wonderful singer and guitar player (and a warm personality) but some dreadful choice of material and arrangements. Buy the LP's, record the material you like and then sell them again!

Add The Kerrs (mother and daughter) James Fagin Gordan Tyrall Christine Kidd Isla StClair (female version of Dave Burland!) + others I can't recall

I don't think those who enjoy good interpretation of tradition music would like June Tabor (Maddy Prior at times perhaps) : some very non traditional stuff and non traditional styles.
