Country singing sensation Nathan Carter has confirmed he will play a date at Cork Live at The Marquee on Sunday 15th June. Tickets go on sale Thursday 1st May at 9am.
Born on 28th May 1990, Nathan spent his childhood years in Liverpool growing up in a family with strong Irish roots, his folks originating from Newry in County Down.
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. In no time at all Nathan had begun playing solo gigs around Liverpool and London as well as occasional shows in Ireland.
On a trip to Donegal in April 2009, he met with songwriter John Farry and in a few short months Nathan`s dream of performing with his own band became a reality.
'Wagon Wheel`, the single taken from the album of the same name became a huge hit for Nathan, with well over a million hits on You Tube. Nathan`s current studio album `Where I Wanna Be'` and the new Wagon Wheel Live Show' audio CD both reached the coveted Number 1 position in the Irish charts.
Nathan is now a huge attraction on the Irish music scene, and has brought a whole new generation of fans of all ages to Country Music in Ireland. Having just signed with Decca Records, a UK/Scottish Tour is planned for later this year.
