Carson Hill to headline Dove House benefit concert

June 19, 2014

Anson County resident Carson Hill, country musician, singer and songwriter, will be performing at The Charles Mack Citizen Center Auditorium in Mooresville on June 21.

The concert will benefit Dove House Children’s Advocacy Center, a non-profit organization that provides services for sexually abused children in Iredell and Alexander counties. Doors open for the 7:30 p.m. concert at 7 p.m., and the show opens with Mooresville’s own Clyde Derberry. The concert is being held in The Joe V. Knox Auditorium.

“This will be a family-friendly concert,” said Jack Grossman, a Dove House volunteer. “You will be amazed at the talent Carson Hill and her band possess.”

Tickets for the concert are $15 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Tickets are available at Big Hat Larry’s Music Store on Main Street in Mooresville, or by calling Dove House at 704-883-9814. Tickets may be available at the door depending on seating availability for the 235-seat auditorium.

16-year old Hill picked up a guitar when she was just 11 years old, and learned by watching You Tube videos. She has since made a name for herself in North Carolina and recently returned from a one-week stint in Nashville. After touring Dove House Children’s Advocacy Center, Hill was excited to do what she can to help raise awareness and funds for Dove House.

“I am excited about this concert and helping Dove House and the children,” said Hill. “This will be a great event and one that I’m really looking forward to!”

A new guitar, donated by Big Hat Larry’s, will be autographed by Hill and her band, and raffled off with other great items. All net proceeds from the event benefit Dove House.
