karen k - I hope that you'll sing this at the National. I gather Sara Gray also sings Willie drowned in Ero from the singing of Mrs Eva Bigrow on the same LP.
There is a song called Little Footman Boy sung by Alice Penfold, and recorded by Mike Yates, on the Topic LP 12TS395: Travellers Songs, Stories and Tunes from English Gypsies, but this could be a different song. As I haven't got the LP I can't tell.
