Hagman Programme on Travellers on BBC4 tonight (33) RE: Programme on Travellers on BBC4 tonight 17 Feb 19

"There was a wonderful song near the end which sounded like Nancy Kerr. Does anyone have any info about the song's name etc."

Nancy K. on her Twitter feed confirms that yes, it was her:

"This [the BBC program] is interesting and features my singing of Ewan McColl’s gorgeous song “Thirty Foot Trailer” from @kerrfagan album Strands of Gold."

Details here from Reinhard's Mainly Norfolk database:
