I and my small ones love the Bagpuss soundtrack and would love to find something similar- traditional folk with whimsical little stories told in clear voices by school ma'am/ friendly old farmer uncle voices and tiny mice. If I can't find any specifically children's music like this, I'll be happy to just find some trad folk like this, fiddles and shanties... thanks!

Well for shanties try the fishermans friends

My favourites at the moment are the lost brothers, folk, but different to what you are looking for

The trouble is, most traditional folk music is quite dark, lyrically speaking (when not performed by adorable mice from the 70s). I suppose it reflects our history. I'm a huge fan of the stuff, but you have to listen to a lot of it as you would an album by Eminem or someone, cos by & large the themes are sex & violence.

Suggest some purely instrumental stuff to entertain the dcs.

Not folk music, but related -
Oliver Postgate and the man who did the music for his animations wrote a little opera based on The Clangers. I think it's still available.
