The Kingsport Office of Cultural Arts in partnership with Engage Kingsport presents Carson Peters and Iron Mountain: Premier Album Release Celebration on Friday, January 27 at the Renaissance Arts Center Theatre. The band will host a fan appreciation event from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Gallery prior to the concert.
The Iron Mountain band entertains audiences performing old-time, bluegrass, and gospel music. The band consists of Carson Peters, his father Jamie Peters, Eric Marshall and Ben Marshall of Mount Airy, North Carolina and Austin Tate of Marion, Virginia.
For those of you who don’t know Carson Peters, he’s the young lead of the band. He started playing the fiddle at the ripe old age of 3 when his parents bought him a 1/8 size fiddle. By age 4, he was playing in fiddle competitions and jamming at musical festivals. At 12 years old, Carson is a seasoned performer playing numerous venues with his band throughout the region – Bristol Rhythm and Roots, Dollywood’s Bluegrass and BBQ and WDVX’s World Class Bluegrass concert series to name a few. Carson has also had the honor of playing on national TV as a guest on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Little Big Shots with Steve Harvey, as well as play with Jimmy Fortune on the floor of the Tennessee State Senate.
The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $15. Tickets are available at the door, online or in advance at the Renaissance Arts Center.
