A young fan of Hudson Taylor was stunned when the Irish singer/songwriting duo stopped to hear him sing as he busked in Limerick.

Robbie Monaghan (16) from Galway was driven down to Limerick by his parents on Easter Sunday to hear Hudson Taylor perform at Steamboat Records.

The lads are currently touring Ireland on the back of their new EP, Feel it Again, and have been treating fans to performance and signings at record stores across the country.

"I sang outside the shop in the hope that they would hear me and after my second song the manager or Steamboat came out and said I was brilliant and he'd try and get the guys out to listen," reveals Robbie.

He adds, "They came out and asked if I would play a song for them and I was stunned - my favourite singers in front of me!"

Robbie sang Chasing Rubie by Hudson Taylor and earned himself a huge round of applause after his excellent performance.

Check him out in the video above.
