Stranger on the Shore

Song 30:365 is my version of clarinettist Acker Bilk’s Stranger on the Shore, dating from 1961. It was originally named Jenny after Bilk’s daughter, but was used as the theme for a 1961 BBC TV series called Stranger on the Shore. This song has literally been to the moon and back: the crew of Apollo 10 took this song on their lunar mission in 1969 and it was played on a cassette tape in the command module of the spacecraft.

Sadly there’s no clarinet involved, but I hope you enjoy my version nonetheless!
