Chatham: Irish singer Nathan Carter to bring Livin' The Dream tour to Kent

By Angela Cole

He’s Ireland’s No.1 entertainer, who’s doing rather well over here too.

Nathan Carter brings his aptly-titled Livin’ The Dream tour to the UK, stopping off in Medway.

The former head choirboy performs original Irish and country music songs and covers, and has already notched up quite an army of female fans.

In his home country, he has outsold One Direction, Pharrell Williams and Michael Buble and became the first country act to reach No.1 in the Irish charts in 2013 after Garth Brooks, six years before.

He also topped the Irish charts with his fifth album Where I Wanna Be and again with his recent Irish disc Livin’ The Dream, released in September and featuring his blend of Celtic, country and pop sounds.

After starting singing at the age of four, he went on, as a choirboy, to sing for Pope John Paul ll in Rome and President Bill Clinton.

An accomplished accordion player too, he joined the Liverpool Ceili band, and, on a trip to Donegal in 2009, he met songwriter John Farry.

A well known face on TV too, his self-titled five-episode television show saw him perform with KT Tunstall, the Shires and Billy Ocean to an audience of more than 2.5m viewers.

He’ll play the Central Theatre in Chatham on Wednesday, February 7. To book tickets, visit tickets.medway.gov.uk.
