Laura Marling hailed her 2010 T In The Park gig tonight (July 10) as the "funniest" of her festival season so far.

The singer, who played the Red Bull Bedroom Jam Futures Stage, treated the crowd to a part-acoustic, part-full band set drawing material from her two albums.

"This has been my funnest [sic] gig of the festival season so far," she said towards the end of her set. "So thank you very much!"

Elsewhere in her set, Marling mentioned the other acts she was performing between on the stage, saying: "How good were the Mystery Jets earlier on? And how you all looking forward to Julian Casablancas next?" with both questions drawing loud responses from the crowd.

The singer, who was backed by her regular solo bandmates for the majority of her set, also played three songs completely solo - 'Don't Ask Me Why', 'Night Terror' and 'Goodbye England (Covered in Snow)'.

'Night Terror' saw her goad the crowd into whistling the solo, saying: " Just to let you know, I'm really good at whistling, and so I want you all to match me on this next one...".

She also let the Scottish audience into a secret about 'Goodbye England (Covered In Snow)'.

"Just after I wrote this song I did a tour of Scotland," Marling explained, adding "and now every time I play it all I can think of and picture is the Highlands."

Laura Marling played:

'Devil's Spoke'
'Hope In The Air'
'Rambling Man'
'My Manic And I'
'Don't Ask Me Why'
'Night Terror'
'Goodbye England (Covered in Snow)'
'Alpha Shallows'
'Alas I Cannot Swim'
'I Speak Because I Can'
