Royal Festival Hawley

great gig on saturday night, he prefaced this gorgeous song (maybe the standout one on his new album Truelove's Gutter) with the following:
'I wrote this for my wife in the hope that I’d get a shag off her . . . I sat down and played it to her, and it was the most beautiful version I’ve ever played.'
[Asked by one member of the audience what happened next:]
'She said, ‘What’s for tea?’.'
