Carson Peters and Iron Mountain
May 6 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM$25
CARSON PETERS 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. Carson has continued to hone the fiddling and singing talents that God has so graciously blessed him with and has won many competitions along the way. At 18 years old, Carson is a seasoned performer playing numerous venues with his band Iron Mountain throughout the United States and Canada; Bristol Rhythm and Roots, Dollywood’s Bluegrass and BBQ, Song of the Mountains, Carter Family Fold, Silver Dollar City BBQ and Bluegrass, Jenny Brook Bluegrass Festival, and Bluegrass Island just 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. On March 28, 2014, Carson’s dream of playing on the Grand Ole Opry stage was realized when he was invited by Ricky Skaggs to come perform with him and his band, Kentucky Thunder. In May of the same year, Carson was asked to make a reappearance at the Opry, but this time with his own band. On July 31, 2014, Carson made his Ryman Auditorium debut playing again with Ricky Skaggs during the 2014 Bluegrass Nights series. Since these appearances, Carson and his band have performed on numerous occasions on the Opry Show. In November of 2018, Carson was thrilled to be asked to play fiddle for his buddy Ricky Skaggs when he was honored at the nationally televised 52 nd CMA Awards Show. Most recently Carson was a featured artist on the nationally televised 2021 Season 21 of NBC’s The Voice. Carson says that winning trophies and getting your name in the paper is “really cool” but that is not the main reason he works so hard at his music. “It’s all about using the talent God gave me to make people smile!” Carson truly loves entertaining people!
Carson has been blessed to have a great band, IRON MOUNTAIN to help him entertain audiences performing
old-time, bluegrass, and gospel music. The band consists of Carson’s father, Jamie Peters, Eric Marshall and Ben Marshall of Mount Airy, North Carolina, Austin Tate of Marion, Virginia and James McDowell of Hendersonville, NC. Carson is truly blessed to have these fine Christian musicians in his band.
