"What Caledonia are we talking about...the one that Norma Waterson sings is tradition from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Is there another song called Caledonia ? "

The song you are talking about is called "When first I went to Caledonia" recorded by Tony Cuffe and later by Norma.

The song the earlier post is about is by Dougie MacLean and was sung by Frankie Miller in a UK TV beer ad.

There is of course a Louis Jordan song with the same title.

Cheers, John
