Singer plays a laid-back set on the Pyramid Stage

Norah Jones plays Glastonbury for the first time
Norah Jones played her first ever Glastonbury set on the Pyramid Stage stage on the last day of the festival today (June 27).

The daughter of famed sitarist Ravi Shankar played a 50-minute set to an appreciative crowd.

"How are you guys out there?" asked the Brooklyn-born and Texas-raised singer-songwriter after 'Light As A Feather'. "It's like Texas out there!"

Playing her hits 'Don't Know Why' – accompanied just by a piano and a member of her band providing harmonies – and 'Come Away With Me', Jones' relaxed set saw her switching between electric guitar and keys.

"You guys are enjoying the sun, right? Were you awake for the sunrise?" she asked before she took to the piano and played 'Sunrise'.

"You guys like Johnny Cash?", said Jones before proceeding to play a cover of his early song 'Cry Cry Cry'.

"I don't think it's every day I get to open up for Slash, so thank you Glastonbury for that," added Jones towards the end of her show.

Norah Jones played:

'Wouldn't Need You'
'Tell Yer Mamma'
'Light As A Feather'
'Chasing Pirates'
'Even Though'
'Young Blood'
'It's Gonna Be'
'Sunrise'
'Sinkin' Soon'
'Don't Know Why'
'Cry Cry Cry'
'Come Away With Me'
'Stuck'
