Carson Peters, or “Fiddlin’ Carson Peters,” as he is becoming known 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 fiddlin’ and singing talents that God has so graciously blessed him with and has won many competitions along the way. At ten 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, Asheville’s Bluegrass First Class, Song of the Mountains and WDVX’s World Class Bluegrass concert series to name a few. Carson has also had the honor to play on national TV as a guest on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno as well as play with Jimmy Fortune on the floor of the Tennessee State Senate. On March 28th of 2014, Carson’s dream of playing on the Grand Ole Opry stage was realized when he was invited by Ricky Skaggs to come and perform with him and Kentucky Thunder.
