Nathan Carter is the brightest young star to hit Ireland in recent years. Nathan was born in Liverpool in 1990 and grew up in a family with strong Irish roots. Nathan was born to perform and at the tender age of four he began to learn to play the accordion, in a few short years he went on to become the head chorister in the Liverpool Boys Choir, touring the world and even singing for the Pope. He made regular trips to Ireland to compete in Fleadh Ceoil s and resulted in medals for the accordion and for singing. This resulted him in becoming a member of the Liverpool Ceili band where he played the accordion and piano and in no time at all he began to play solo gigs in London and Liverpool along with the occasional show in Ireland. On a trip to Donegal in 2009 he met up with songwriter John Farry, who was hugely impressed with Nathan s ability and in a few short months his dream of performing with his own band became a reality.
