Subject: RE: What exactly does 'Sing in your own voice' mean?
Well, Ian; we all had our Ewan recollections. He was always quite civil to me, but treated a friend of mine very ill. The story is somewhere on one of the Ewan threads, and not really relevant here so I just mention it in passing.

I would still defend his Scottish singing, which I think has often been unfairly animadverted against ~~ see my last post. But I certainly have no brief for his gross over-prescriptiveness re authenticity, which has been disputed on other threads as attributable to him, but which I recollect perfectly from Ballads & Blues days.
