Brenda Wootton, Louis Robinson, Chris Newman and Henry Davis perform in 1978. One of her songs was in French: "Ma Chere Cornouailles" (My Dear Cornwall), a poignant lament from an exiled Cornishman far from home and longing to see his native fields again. I heard it at a live performance she made at a local folk club. I was soon to take a group of my students to Brittany, and this song seemed to be a great choice to teach the students and to perform while we were there.

The legend is the subject of the 1980 song "Mermaid" by Cornish folk singer Brenda Wootton. In 2014 indie band The Hit Parade released their album Cornish Pop Songs featuring the song "Zennor Mermaid. In a curious twist, the local arts writer who interviewed Hit Parade founder Julian Henry for The Cornishman was named "Lee Trewhela.

Brenda Wootton, my mother, was a well-known and much-loved Cornish singer who took her joy of singing and love of Cornwall around the world in the 1970s and 80s - I've started with a book of her poems and a postcard, but look out for some rare copies of her vinyl albums, posters etc, which will be appearing soon, for aficionados. Gallimaufry is my brand new opus on collective nouns - those endearing little phrases of which people seem so keen to compile lists - and I am no exception
