Subject: RE: Ed Sheeran and Irish Folk Songs
Sheeran has his own record label, no wonder Taylor Swift got him on her tour. They both have a business brain. Reading the Wiki it is obvious the guy has nouse, and and knows how to reward his audience. He gives back.
A (relatively) closet Folkie IMNSHO.

Jamie Lawson, the label's first signee, met Sheeran while they were both in London's folk circuit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Sheeran > Gingerbread Man Records
