Country music favourite Nathan Carter is set to headline Dalriada Live 2014, following his hugely successful appearance during last year's event.

Dalriada Live is a firm fixture for the popular P&O Ferries Dalriada Festival at the picturesque venue of Glenarm Castle, Co Antrim.

Featuring top quality music, food and sport, the Festival is also the venue for the well-known Highland Games.

Coming into its fourth year, Dalriada Live will now feature two nights of live music on 13 and 14 July 2014.

Born in Liverpool and with family from Co Fermanagh, Nathan Carter's musical career began at the age of four when he took up accordion and started winning traditional singing competitions from the age of seven.

During his much anticipated return to the Dalriada stage, fans can expect to hear his popular hit Wagon Wheel as well as others including One for the Road and Caledonia.

Pete Tobit, from Festival promoters Silver Fox Productions, said: "We were overwhelmed with the response Nathan Carter received last year that we had to have him back for 2014.

"After the 2013 event it was very clear that there was an appetite from the public for a second evening of music. We are delighted to announce that Silver Fox Productions will be staging a second evening of music with details to be confirmed in early January.

"We are also pleased to confirm that the charity for this year's event will be Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity."

Adrian Morrow, from Glenarm Castle, added: "Dalriada Live as part of P&O Ferries Dalriada Festival has been growing in strength over the years and we are delighted that we will return in our 4th year with the fantastic Nathan Carter and an additional evening of music.

"We are delighted to be working for a second time with Silver Fox Productions who staged one of our best shows to date in 2013 with Nathan Carter and they look set to do this again in 2014.

Glenarm Castle is home to the Viscount and Viscountess Dunluce and their family. It has been owned by the McDonnell family since it was built in 1636.

The Dalriada Festival runs from 13-19 July 2014.

Tickets for Nathan Carter at Dalriada Live 2014 are on sale now.
