Nathan was born on 28th May 1990, growing up in Liverpool. His family originate from Newry in County Down. He soon learned to play the accordion and trips to Ireland to compete in Fleadh Cheoil’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 Céilí 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.
