Nathan Carter is one of the biggest names on the Irish music scene and is fast becoming a big name all over the UK.
Nathan was born on 28 May 1990. He grew up in Liverpool and his family originate from Newry in County Down.
He soon learned to play the accordion and trips to Ireland to compete in Fleadh Cheoil competition became a regular feature of young Nathan’s life.
Aged 12 he won All-Ireland medals for singing, and playing the accordion. Nathan played accordion and piano with Liverpool Ceili band and solo performances soon followed in Liverpool and Ireland.
Nathan performs an array of original songs and covers which show the tone and range of his vocal ability. His delivery emotes clearly his own passion for the songs and what being Irish means to him.
Since his appearance on BBC 1’s “The One Show” back in August, his profile on this side of the Irish Sea has grown immeasurably.
Nathan is an expert accordion player so you can expect a bit of hand clapping, foot-tapping hooley at the concerts. This friendly and good looking young man will perform a superbly entertaining show that will make you want to see him again.
There will be support at Manchester Bridgewater Hall from The Houghton Weavers and London from All Folk’d Up.
