GUEST,Brķan Origins: The Three Sea Captains (13) RE: Help: History &c of 'The Three Sea Captains'? 05 Sep 02

I recall seeing Joannie Madden playing this tune on the whistle while a young dancer whose name I don't recall danced to it at an Irish Children's Benefit in Portland, Maine. He finished the dance by tapping his pointed toe out in front of himself and then touching his knee to his forehead, a seemingly impossible feat which stunned and amazed the audience as well as bringing down the house.

There is a French-Canadian song that has many versions LES TROIS CAPITAINES that I wonder might be related in some way.
