Ed Sheeran stunned fans at Britain’s Latitude Festival on Sunday (17Jul16) with a surprise return to live music. The British tunesmith began a well earned break from music in October last year (15), with the aim of travelling the world. However after nine months, Ed returned to the spotlight by joining his friend Foy Vance on stage at the event in his home county of Suffolk, England, on Sunday afternoon. Foy, who is signed to the Talking Out Loud singer’s record label, Gingerbread Man Records, was playing the festival’s BBC 6 Music stage when Ed unexpectedly appeared with his famous ginger locks hidden beneath a baseball cap. The pair performed Foy’s 2013 song Guiding Light – a track Ed has covered at his own gigs. It is not the first time the 25-year-old singer-songwriter has delighted fans by turning up unannounced to play at the festival, sited near to Ed’s hometown of Framlingham, as last year he performed a surprise 75-minute set
