Following the global success of his “Wellerman” sea shanty and the 220 KID and Bill & Ted remix via Universal which continues to hold #2 on the Official Charts, Nathan Evans today announces a U.K. and Ireland tour for 2021. The tour kicks off on 1 December in Dublin.
Nathan kickstarted the sea shanty phenomenon and it’s all down to him that a new generation are discovering the thrills of fisherman-themed, multi-harmonised folk music. It all began when Nathan, from Airdrie, North Lanarkshire in Scotland, decided to start uploading songs to TikTok after completing his morning duties as a postman. He soon found himself at the centre of a new cultural movement whirling around sea shanties with his own videos racking up millions of views overnight.Now, signed to Universal Music and taking his music career full time, he follows in the chart dominating footsteps of those he has always admired including Dermot Kennedy, Lewis Capaldi and Ed Sheeran as well as finding unlikely fans in Andrew Lloyd Webber, Gary Barlow and Brian May who have also uploaded their own renditions of the song to TikTok.
Merchant Voices is a community choir based in the City Halls in Glasgow's Merchant City, they are currently hosting weekly online rehearsals and would love you to join them!
