The Caverns is the new and permanent home to Bluegrass Underground. Artists booked for next season’s tapings include singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile, legendary bluegrass and “newgrass” artist The Sam Bush Band, breakout bluegrass band Flatt Lonesome, eclectic Americana guitarslinger Aaron Lee Tasjan, The Tim O’Brien Bluegrass Band and Cuban roots-rockers Sweet Lizzy Project, the group introduced to American audiences by Mavericks leader Raul Malo in PBS Great Performances: Havana Time Machine.
In addition to the television series performances, The Caverns has also announced the initial list of artists for its premiere year, including John Anderson, The Del McCoury Band, Dailey & Vincent, a Piano-palooza with Davina & The Vagabonds and Jason D. Williams, Sierra Hull and a very special Halloween at The Caverns with Here Come the Mummies. More shows will be announced in the coming months. For a complete list of announced shows and dates, please see below.
“Since our announcement in August of our move to The Caverns, we’ve been devoting every hour of every day in preparing one of the most unique venues in the world for its first round of music lovers,” says Caverns owner and Bluegrass Underground creator Todd Mayo. “Our goal is to create the perfect atmosphere for a one of a kind experience inside a cavern located in one of the most beautiful areas of Tennessee. We think the folks joining us for our premiere weekend and throughout the year will be very happy with what they see and hear.”
The Caverns is now offering patrons two new and improved travel packages that each provide high quality Tennessee experiences. Patrons can choose between the Monteagle Mountain Package and the Chattanooga Package. The Monteagle Mountain Package provides accommodations at a historic Tennessee lodge just minutes from the venue, surrounded by great hiking, local shopping and dining options. The Chattanooga Package provides accommodations in one of the South’s most breathtaking cities, with outdoor adventure, great restaurants and world class attractions all nearby. Both packages now include transportation to and from the venue and your very own package concierges to help get the most out of your weekend experience.
“Every aspect of the patron experience has been improved and enhanced – a streamlined ticketing process, closer parking, nicer bathrooms, more comfortable seating, better sightlines and more. And the space itself is even grander and, dare I say…‘cavier’,” says The Caverns General Manager and Associate Producer Joe Lurgio. The Caverns is also excited to offer upgraded food and beverage concessions that will include a longtime request from patrons: beer.
Located at the foot of Monteagle Mountain in the rolling hills of Grundy County, Tennessee, The Caverns is just 10 minutes from Exit 127 on I-24. Packages and tickets for all events go on sale Saturday, Dec 9, at www.thecaverns.com
