PENNAN VILLAGE - FISHER'S LULLABY - FROM THE ALBUM "SAND, SILT, FLINT" BY FIONA SOE PAING http://FionaSoePaing.bandcamp.com Lullabies sung by the wives of fishermen are common in the fishing communities of North East Scotland. The women of these tiny coastal villages such as Pennan, Gardenstown and Crovie, constantly worried for their husbands while they were out at sea. Singing lullabies was a simple way for them to calm both their children and their worries. The original version “The Sang O' The Fisherman's Wife" was written by Zetta Sinclair, mother of Scottish singer and former game show host Isla St Claire, who grew up in Buckie on the north Aberdeenshire coast. Zetta was also one of the original founders in the 1960s of the Aberdeen Folk Song Club.
