It wasn’t a surprise, but when Taylor Swift showed up at a James Taylor show this week to play with one of her musical idols, it certainly was a treat for fans of both artists.

This past Monday (July 2), during a show at Tanglewood outside of Boston, the Berkshire Eagle reports that Taylor Swift (whom the paper describes as a “rapidly rising” artist) took the stage twice during the elder Taylor’s two-hour, hit-filled set. First she sang a duet on the James Taylor classic “Fire and Rain,” which she’d previously sung when James appeared during her set at Madison Square Garden last fall (which was a surprise to fans).

Swift then returned during the second half of James’ two-plus-hour show to sing two of her own songs, “Ours” and “Love Story.” Swift’s friend Roxy Olin tweeted a photo of her friend backstage:

James Taylor harmonized on the choruses of Swift’s songs and accompanied her on guitar. The site also reports that Swift at this point also explained that the idea for her appearance here had been hatched when James had joined her last fall at Madison Square Garden.

So, what plans do you think the two Taylors hatched this time? We can only wait and see.
