This concert series is shot 333 feet underground in the Volcano Room of Tennessee's 32-mile long Cumberland Caverns. The subterranean descent passes a waterfall and pool, leading to a musical venue unlike any other. With the slogan, "a little bit Bluegrass, a little bit Underground," the series reaches beyond the traditional, serving as a showcase for established & emerging acts in the Roots, Americana, Neo-Folk, Gospel, and Blues/Jazz/Jamgrass genres.
Named by the first people to behold this natural amphitheatre,the Volcano Room was carved over 3.5 million years ago as water and time entwined to create one of the most acoustically pure natural spaces on Earth. With a constant 56 degrees, the sun never shines, but the weather is always clear!
