Re: Sailing specific songs

A favorite and also a traditional old one:


The love that I have chosen I'll therewith be content
And the salt sea shall be frozen before that I repent
Repent it shall I never until the day I dee
But the lowlands of Holland has twined my love and me.

My love lies in the salt sea and I am on the side
It's enough to break a young thing's heart what lately was a bride.
But lately was a bonny bride with pleasure in her e'e.
But the lowlands of Holland has twined my love and me.

My love he built a bonny ship and set her on the sea
With seven score good mariners to bear her company.
But there's three score of them is sunk and three score dead at sea
And the lowlands of Holland has twined my love and me.

My love has built another ship and set her on the main
And nane but twenty mariners all for to bring her hame.
But the weary wind began to rise, the sea began to roll
And my love then and his bonny ship turned withershins about.

Then shall neither quiff come on my head nor comb come in my hair
And shall neither coal nor candlelight shine in my bower mair.
And neither will I marry until the day I dee
For I never had a love but one and he's drowned in the sea.

"Oh hold your tongue my daughter dear, be still and be content.
There's men enough in Galloway; you need not sore lament."
Oh there's men enough in Galloway, alas there's none for me
For I never had a love but one and he's drowned in the sea.

You have to choose the best interpretation because I love them all. I am a fan of what is know called world music and in this case folk music. I know all those bands and singers and even have the complete record collection of one of them so, you choose the best

Re: Sailing specific songs

Great finds PCP! I looked for a Chieftains song in my cd collection (I have a lot of their CDs) but was surprised that I could not find one about sailing.

Well, how about this song:



Probably you don't know that the North of Portugal and Galicia (where the language is Galego, from where the Portuguese language is descendant) have a Celtic heritage? You can find it on the music and dances and even in medieval stone work or in today's gold Jewellery. Portuguese and Irish have a lot in common. we go along quite well.

Re: Sailing specific songs

When I worked in the construction business, most of our concrete crews were from Portugal. They were awesome workers. I always enjoyed the Portugese wine (too much) at Christmas parties!

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



Regards

Paulo

Re: Sailing specific songs

The folk dance is great. In the US, we have almost nothing like this except maybe square dance, which has been largely forgotten. I always admire cultures that do not forget their roots. I would like to sail to the Azores, and had planned to do so some day, but the regulations seem daunting.

I don't want to go out of topic but Açores is really something you should not miss. I Intend to sail there in a year or two. The culture is strong and they are proud of it. Curiously one of the bigger if not the bigger Folclore festival in Portugal is on Açores. Just put on you tube : Festival folclorico açores. And then try : Racho Folclorico.

Off course Açores has also some great food:

São Jorge’s cheese, the sweet and juicy pineapples from Sao Miguel and the aperitif wine from Pico that once reached the table of the Czars, are all compulsory stopping places in a gastronomic itinerary of the Azores.

Gastronomy | Azores - Azores

As you can see popular culture is strong and well and everywhere there are "Ranchos Folcloricos". Around where I live as there are many as everywhere and the kids enjoy participating and that is great.

So, back to topic and to a great Canadian singer and composer:
