Mountains of Music Homecoming 2019: Carson Peters and Presley Barker
McGlothlin Center for the Arts - Emory & Henry College, 7:30 PM-10:00 PM
If you haven’t heard of fiddler Carson Peters and guitarist Presley Barker, chances are you will – a lot. Barely in their teens, Carson and Presley have already appeared on stages many artists only dream of – the Grand Ole Opry, NBC TV’s Tonight Show and Little Big Shots, MerleFest, and the Country Music Association Awards show. And shared those stages with marquee artists like Ricky Skaggs and Brad Paisley. Carson and Presley each have their own groups, but these two friends love playing music together when they can and this concert gives them that opportunity. They will perform as a duo to start the concert and will be joined in the second set by even more youth string wizards including Ben Marshall on bass, Austin Tate on mandolin, and Clay Russell on banjo.
From 6:30-7:15 PM there will be youth program performances by WiseJAMS-Big Stone Gap (Black Box Theatre) and Henderson JAM (Atrium).
