Watch: St Patrick's Day Q&A with country star Nathan Carter

Country star Nathan Carter is gearing up to rock Belfast with his St Patrick's Day Party radio show.

In a mix of chat and music, over the course of an hour, Nathan and some special guests will share some of their own personal memories and stories of St Patrick’s Day.

Joining Nathan at the party, recorded at Broadcasting House in Belfast, will be comedian Patrick Kielty; Chloe Agnew; Co Down singer/songwriter Catherine McGrath; Brian Kennedy, and contemporary Irish Folk Rock band, All Folk’d Up.

Kielty pops in for a chat with Nathan and shares stories of St Patrick’s Day growing up in Dundrum and reveals how some people in the US, where he now lives with his wife and two sons, simply won’t believe his name is Patrick on St Patrick’s Day.

Belfast-born Brian Kennedy, who is preparing to celebrate 30 years in the music business, will perform ‘Carrickfergus’ as a duet with Nathan.

Catherine McGrath, who has been hailed by some as Northern Ireland’s answer to Taylor Swift, has at the age of 21 already shared the bill with Michael Buble and Lady Antebellum, and will perform one of her own songs with Nathan during the show.

Nathan, who is from Liverpool, and has made Northern Ireland his second home, says: “We had a brilliant night’s craic recording the show with some really talented friends of mine. I hope the listeners will enjoy the show as we get St Patrick’s weekend off to a great start.”

Nathan Carter’s St Patrick’s Day Party is on BBC Radio Ulster on Friday, March 15 at 8pm.
