You're very lucky.   I gather he doesn't perform much these days.
He tells a story so "matter of fact" that is sends a shiver through me.
"... There had even been a warning from a folklorist of a curse on the new roadway and of motoring fatalities if the fairy bush was to fall victim to the £100 million plan to bypass Newmarket-on-Fergus and Ennis. ..."
