This weekend, Irish country singer Nathan Carter will visit the Town Hall as part of his UK Tour. Nathan has become a huge attraction on the Irish music scene, engaging new generations and encouraging listeners of all ages to explore country music in Ireland. Performing with his band, since 2009 he has captivated audiences all over Ireland, the UK and beyond with his mellow vocals and lyrical melodies.

Nathan has recorded five albums – Starting Out, The Way You Love Me, Time Of My Life, Wagon Wheel and his latest release Where I Wanna Be which recently reached number one position in the Irish Album Charts.
