Fiddlin’ Carson Peters to perform at benefit

After the success of the interactive music walk fundraiser last month, organizer Steve Cook is excited to already be launching another such event — one guaranteed to bring even more music and laughter to the area.
“The feedback has been 110 percent positive,” Cook said of the current plans to establish an interactive music walkway downtown designed to appeal to both young and old. “We just need to get the word out.”
The word — and the music — will certainly be out Saturday, Feb. 21, beginning at 6:30 p.m. when Fiddlin’ Carson Peters and Wolf Creek both take the stage at the McKinney Center for the Arts.
Both groups, Cook said, are phenomenal musicians, intrigued by the concept of the interactive walk and ready to perform to help raise money for the project.
Wolf Creek is a five-piece band from Northeast Tennessee specializing in an eclectic blend of bluegrass, classic country, blues and rock-n-roll.
The evening will also feature 10-year-old Fiddlin’ Carson Peters.
“Fiddlin’ Carson Peters started fiddling when he was about 3,” Cook said.
He is incredibly talented and a born entertainer, he added.
“If you have a kid who is interested in music, come see Carson perform,” he said.
Concert attendees will also have the opportunity to understand more about the interactive musical devices that will be part of the proposed trail.
“It will be a good time for a good cause,” Cook said.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $25 a couple and $10 for children and seniors 65 and over. To purchase tickets, visit jonesboroughtn.org or call 753-1010.
