Very hopeful question I know but I saw you play at Wymeswold Village Hall, Leicestershire, England back in 1999 (I think) with Lynn Miles as support
That night you sang a song as a request from someone in the audience that as I recall was a bit of a novelty song, something perhaps about a young boy but I am not sure as time has played tricks on my memory
Is this too vague for you to tell me what song it was ?
Regards, Terry

Wymeswold was a memorable show. What I remember most was the bad note Oliver Steck hit on the trumpet, and his resulting shame. The song you refer to was written and sung by bass player Ivan Brown: "He's Old He's Six."
