Subject: RE: In praise of Martin Carthy
I agree, Ray. I admire and enjoy Carthy immensely, but if I do a song that he has previously done, I will see an original source (book or recording) and work out my own arrangement. There are so many performers and bands out there whose versions of songs are based on others’ adaptations, and not on traditional sources.
