Thread Name: Originality of song choice
Subject: RE: Originality of song choice
I was thinking rather of an artist like Andy Turner who steadfastly refused to learn The Wild Rover so that he could honestly say to anyone who requested it that he didn't know it. This lasted until he found a really beautiful, alternative version which enabled him to learn and perform it. Also in mind were Mary Humphreys & Anahata who specialise in binding together "floating verses" (and lovely, unusual takes on tunes), all of which are irresistably nickable.
