One of Ireland’s biggest live acts is coming to the Queen’s Theatre in Barnstaple on Thursday, February 8.

Country-pop crossover star Nathan Carter beat both Beyoncé and Drake to a number one album in the Irish charts and has been busy touring to sold-out venues.

He performs a brand of Irish and country music with a fine voice which stands apart, whether complimented with his live band or with solo piano accompaniment.

In Ireland, he outsold One Direction, Pharrell Williams and Michael Buble, and became the first country act to reach number one in the charts in 2013 after Garth Brooks, six years before.

Nathan is developing into a household name, with tracks from his album Stayin’ Up All Night becoming hits, such as Wagon Wheel and I Wanna Dance.

Growing up in a house where country and western filled the air, Nathan was exposed to songs of Johnny Cash, Don Williams and Dolly Parton.

Performing from the age of four, learning to play guitar, piano and accordion, which plays a vital part in his live show, Nathan became head chorister in the Liverpool Boys Choir where he toured the world and performed in front of the Pope in Rome.
