Elizabeth Fraser has recorded a version of the Irish folk song “She Moves Through The Fair” for a new BBC drama series.

A collaboration with the Insects (Tim Norfolk and Bob Locke), the song appears in the debut episode of the corporation’s new supernatural series, The Living And The Dead.

Clash reports that you can hear the song on the Graham Norton show at the 1:44:44 mark.


Earlier this year, Fraser collaborated with her husband, Damon Reece, on the score for a new four-episode miniseries, The Nightmare Worlds Of H.G. Wells. The score is Fraser’s most substantial work since the Cocteau Twins’ Milk And Kisses in 1996.

The Living And The Dead begins on BBC One tonight [June 28], though it has previously been available on the BBC iPlayer as a box set.

The August 2016 issue of Uncut is now on sale in the UK – featuring our cover story on Neil Young, plus the Small Faces, Jeff Beck, Arthur Lee and Love, Jimmy Webb, Ultravox!, Radiohead, Steve Gunn, Mick Harvey, Fleetwood Mac, Ramones, William Burroughs, Bat For Lashes, Bruce Springsteen and more plus 40 pages of reviews and our free 15-track CD
