Nathan Carter (SOLD OUT)

A fully seated concert performance

Nathan spent his childhood years in Liverpool, England, and grew up in a family with strong Irish roots, his folks originating from Newry in County Down. It seems like Nathan was just born to perform, because even at the tender age of four, he began to learn to play the accordion, and in a few short years he had become a head chorister in the Liverpool boys choir, touring the world, and he has even sang for the Pope in Rome.

Trips to Ireland to compete in Fleadh Ceoils became a regular feature of young Nathan's life during his early teens, resulting in All Ireland medals for solo singing , and in accordion, all at just 12 years of age. Nathan soon became a member of the Liverpool Ceili band, playing piano accordion and piano,and in no time at all Nathan had began playing solo gigs around Liverpool and London and playing occasional shows in Ireland.

Nathan is now just over three years on the road with his band, and has recorded five albums and a two DVDs. `Wagon Wheel`, the single taken from the album of the same name has become a huge hit for Nathan, with over a million hits on YouTube and the wheels continue to roll for this special song, which can now be heard in clubs, discos, and dancehalls alike and on all major National Irish radio stations.
