Subject: RE: 'Learned from the singing of...' ?
As long as you don't try to make out that you were the bosom pal of say Sam Larner, I think it's OK. Wherever you learn the song from, that leaves its imprint on your singing- so, say, getting My Lagan Love from a record of Eliza Carthy (has she done it?) would probably result in a quite different interpretation from getting it from a record of Margaret Barry.

In any case, you'll add your own bit.... won't you?
