In a conversation last evening, I was told Nana Mouskouri's 'My Friend the Sea' had been collected on a Scottish island where it seems it had entered the folk canon.

Can anyone confirm this?

The song is a Greek folk song Yalo Yalo.

Interesting, Monique.

Via texts, I've just been assured it was collected almost identical to this version on Nana's 1969 album:

Nana Mouskouri - My Friend the Sea

Let me explain the above.

Sam Baxter (a young singer/guitarist/fiddler from Glossop) sang the song in his set at the Globe when he supported Jackie Oates (in March?).

He was very good.

I missed his introduction to this song when he said where he'd found it.

I've since made contact with Sam via Twitter and he sent me the link. I posted it here as soon as I could but I didn't have time to explain my source.
