The DVD was filmed last summer during Nathan’s performance at the Cork venue.

Born on 28 May 1990, Nathan spent his childhood years in Liverpool growing up in a family with strong Irish roots, his folks  originating from Newry in County Down.Trips to Ireland to compete in Fleadh Ceoil`s became a regular feature of young Nathan`s life during his early teens, resulting in All Ireland medals for solo singing, and in accordion, all at just 12 years of age.  Nathan soon became a member of the Liverpool Ceili band, playing piano accordion and piano.  In no time at all Nathan had begun playing solo gigs around Liverpool and London as well as occasional shows in Ireland. On a trip to Donegal in April 2009, he met with songwriter John Farry and in a few short months Nathan`s dream of performing with his own band became a reality. Nathan is now a huge attraction on the Irish music scene, and has brought a whole new generation of fans of all ages to Country Music in Ireland

`Wagon Wheel`, the single taken from the album of the same name became a huge hit for Nathan, with well over a million hits on You Tube.  Nathan`s  studio album `WHERE I WANNA BE` and the `WAGON WHEEL LIVE SHOW` AUDIO CD both reached the coveted No 1 position in the Irish Charts.
