What a great topic! I can't wait to see what others recommend. (I am already going to have to go look for Golden Bough.... I haven't run across them yet.)
There are SO many I could recommend, but I will stick to just a few...
Though Queen's Gambit is not an SCA oriented group, per se, a lot of their music certainly fits. Two of my favorites of theirs are:
Pawn to King Four (which includes "Threes", my favorite Leslie Fish song...)
En Passant (which features more traditional Irish music)
Another great group (with a silly name) is Burlap Lute, which put together a GREAT CD:
Roger Landes has put together a couple of wonderful CDs, as well: Janissary Stomp and Dragon Reels. (He has a third out too, House to House, but I have not heard it yet). You can find ordering info for all his CDs at http://www.rogerlandes.com/recordings.html
And last but not least, a CD from a personal hero of mine, Frank Blair. Evergreen is one of the most listened-to CDs that I own:
As far as other groups go: Blind Old Dogs, Dervish, and Planxty are all worth a listen... Blackmore's Night too (for more of a mainstreamed feeling).
Hope some of these are to your liking. Let me know what you think, if you get the chance to check some of them out.

I'd like to get recommendations from everyone, about CDs, SCA, period, filk, folk, that you would recommend, and how to get them, if you know.
I'll start with some obvious suspects:
Heather Dale, Call the Names
Serious Steel, Joe Bethancourt, Leslie Fish
For not SCA specific or period specific, but certainly worth knowing for a rollicing open bardic, drive time, and general happiness:
Esther, who is rapidly turning into Emma
