The Elizabethton Parks and Recreation Department proudly presents Covered Bridge Jams, Elizabethton’s annual Saturday night music in the park series, during the entire month of August.
The free weekly concerts will take place each Saturday night in August, at Covered Bridge Park from 7-9 p.m., and will continue each Saturday through August 29. This event is proudly sponsored by WBEJ and the Elizabethton Star.
On Saturday, Aug. 22, we welcome Carson Peters and Iron Mountain. 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. He has appeared on Song of the Mountains, NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Little Big Shots with Steve Harvey, and alongside Ricky Skaggs at the 2018 CMA Awards. He and his band entertain audiences by performing old-time, bluegrass, and gospel music.
Participants are asked to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets as bleacher seating will not be available, as well as to socially distance 6 feet from anyone not inside their household. Wearing a mask is encouraged under Carter County’s recent COVID-19 mask directive.
