Regarding that Portuguese Celtic roots (not the only one, we have many roots
) do you believe I have found a Portuguese traditional song about fisherman and the sea, played by the Chieftains and a Portuguese musician (Alvaro Pereira)? This is a only instrumental version but it is normally sung. The title would translate like this: "Tony, don't go to the sea".
By the way, the instrument that is played by Julio Pereira (the arrangement is also his) it is a Portuguese traditional one, the Cavaquinho. I bet that you now better a ukulele, Hawaii typical instrument, a instrument derived from it...well Portuguese have been everywhere.
A more "normal" and traditional version
