Nathan Carter is one of the most successful live acts in Ireland today and is one of the most celebrated contemporary Irish diaspora, now living in Co. Donegal. Born in Liverpool to Irish parents from County Down, his musical aptitude became apparent from the age of 4 when he started learning the accordion. He also went on to become Head Chorister at Liverpool Cathedral.
As a child, Nathan was deeply involved with his local branch of Comhaltas, and played the accordion with the Liverpool Céilí Band. Every year the Carters - mum Noreen, dad, Ian, and their children Nathan, Kiara and Jake - along with maternal grandparents Nan and Grumps, would take the ferry to Ireland and holiday wherever the All Ireland Fleadh was being held. Nathan went on to win gold medals for both accordion and as a solo singer.
