I have a long history with Dublin's most notorius singer songwriter night, The Ruby Sessions, hosted in Doyle's every Tuesday night for the past 15 or so years. I've played, attended, photographed and made a fool of myself there on many occasions. So, I usually know what to expect when I get a text from organiser Conor telling me there's a surprise guest and can I bring my camera down. Didn't a whole lot of convincing to get him to tell me that last night Ed Sheeran would be gracing the stage. Ed's new album has been in the billboard top10 for the past 5 weeks where it debuted at number 1. He has 10 million twitter followers. Getting to see him play a secret show to just 150 people was quite special. Fair play to all involved.
