Subject: RE: In praise of Martin Carthy
Martin is one of the pioneers of arranging songs, largely traditional with guitar accompaniment ~ his research and practical musical ability have an inspiration to countless folk musicians

I would simply say do the research and sing the songs after finding Martin's traditional singers ~ he isn't the "source" singer ~ so do your own thing and acknowledge his work, then say who the source singer was originally
