Sorry, there are no Nathan Carter dates.
Growing up in a household filled with both Ireland’s Celtic sounds and Country and Western music, Nathan Carter was drawn to music from a very young age. He began learning the accordion when he was 4 years old, adding piano, guitar and voice lessons soon after. By the age of 12 he had won All Ireland medals for singing and accordion and had become a member of the Liverpool Céili band. As a young teenager he began playing solo shows across Liverpool, the UK and Ireland. He soon attracted the attention of an established artist manager who helped him put together a superb 6-piece band and began booking larger shows. Nathan spent every week of the following three years, touring Ireland from head to heel. In 2012 his cover of the Bob Dylan song “Wagon Wheel” became a breakout hit on the Irish charts and remained there for 77 weeks, earning him a Gold Disc.
Nathan soon progressed from playing local dance halls to large city arenas, filling them with audiences of 5,000+ fans and introducing a new generation to country music. There is no doubt that Nathan Carter is the face of the huge country music revival currently underway in Ireland and has been hailed as the catalyst for the dance craze that has swept the country along with it.
To date Nathan has recorded seven studio albums, including “Beautiful Life” which went 4 times Platinum in Ireland. He was named 2016 winner of the RTÉ Irish Country Music Awards for “Live Act of the Year” and “All-Time Favorite Country Song” for Wagon Wheel.
Nathan is a regular guest on TV and has appeared on Ireland’s The Late Late Show, The Nolan Show, the Irish language show Glór Tíre. The BBC’s The One Show made a special documentary about Nathan and the dance trend he has inspired, while Ireland’s national TV station RTÉ gave him his own special; “The Nathan Carter Show”, which received one of the highest national audience viewing figures of 2015, prompting RTÉ to make it an annual event.
In 2018 his TV special Celtic Country premiered in the United States and aired on PBS stations across the country, stations continue to air the program in 2019.
