Adam McPeak & Mountain ThunderHiltons, VA -- Saturday, February 27th, 2016, the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, will present a special bluegrass concert by Adam McPeak & Mountain Thunder. Adam McPeak, 17-year old mandolin player, has headed up his own band since the age of 13, in 2009. He didn’t have to look beyond the blue ridge mountains of home for the sound he was searching for - the rich blend of harmonies from his dad, Mike McPeak. Steve Chrisley lends his deep rich baritone and picking on the five string banjo. Lindsey Jackson will be playing guitar and helping out on vocals. David Chrisley holds them all together on the bass fiddle.

Adam McPeak & his band Mountain Thunder have won multiple SPBGMA awards.
