Nathan Carter and his Band

Nathan Carter is one of the biggest names on the Irish music scene and is fast becoming a big name all over the UK.
Performing in Preston with support from The Houghton Weavers.

Nathan was born on 28th May 1990, growing up in Liverpool. His family originate from Newry in County Down. He soon leaned to play the accordion and trips to Ireland to compete in Fleadh Ceoil’s became a regular feature of young Nathan’s life, and by the age of 12 he won All Ireland medals for singing, and the accordion. Nathan soon became a member of the Liverpool Ceili band, playing accordion and piano, and solo performances soon followed in Liverpool and Ireland.

Nathan performs an array of original songs and covers which show the tone and range of his vocal ability which, on occasion emotes clearly his own passion for the songs and what being Irish means to him.

Since his appearance on BBC 1’s The One Show back in August, his profile on this side of the Irish Sea has grown immeasurably.

Nathan is an expert accordion player so you can expect a bit of  hand clapping, foot tapping hooley as well and this friendly and good looking young man will perform a superbly entertaining show that will make you want to see him again.

SUPPORT: THE HOUGHTON WEAVERS

Formed in 1975, The Houghton Weavers made their television debut in the BBC’s talent show “We’ll Call You”. So successful were they that, within a couple of months they were given their own show “Sit Thi Deawn” which continued for six series over seven years and had the highest viewing figures for any regional T.V. programme.

As well as their own show the Weavers have appeared on many other national TV programmes for both BBC and ITV including “This Is Your Life” and “The Video Entertainers”.
