Nathan Carter Newy Years Eve
31 December 2016
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.

The Three Amigos

In August 2012, at a sell out show in County Cavan Jimmy Buckley, Robert Mizzell and Patrick Feeney announced their intention to break from touring as The Three Amigos. After taking the concert circuit by storm with their award winning show the guys felt that the time was right for them to focus completely on their solo careers. But the parting words from the three that night in Cavan were, We ll be back. True to their word The Three Amigos will re unite for some special live performances in January 2016. Jimmy Buckley is now regarded as one of Ireland's most popular country acts. The Limerick native continues to enjoy huge popularity right across Ireland and the UK with numerous Number 1 hit singles and platinum selling albums. Robert Mizzell, a native of Louisiana USA is now living in County Westmeath. He has been touring successfully with his band, The Country Kings for close to twenty years. His song Say You Love Me is still one of Ireland's biggest selling hit singles.

To date he has graced some of the world s most prestigious stages and is renowned for his wide ranging vocal abilities. The Three Amigos concept which was the brainchild of well-known promoter and broadcaster Joe Finnegan has to date been seen by thousands and the guys have guested on every major Irish TV and radio show including The Late Late Show and The Miriam Show on RTE, Ireland AM on TV3 and all The Prime Time Shows on UTV and BBC Northern Ireland. Indeed Jimmy, Robert and Patrick will be the first to admit that all the top radio stations have been very generous with both airplay and on-air interviews. A live studio interview with The Amigos is according to presenters and producers alike a unique experience. There is no doubt that the chemistry between these three both on and off stage is infectious.

What a great metaphor for the confusing world we live in; from Trump to Isis, Facebook feeds to conspiracy theories and the ever-confusing battle of the sexes.
