Genre-hopping multi-instrumentalist Keller Williams’ Keller In The Caverns event will return for its second year on August 28 and 29. The unique music experience takes place in the spectacular underground setting of The Caverns, a subterranean concert hall located in a cave below the Cumberland Plateau in Pelham, TN. The stunning venue is home to PBS’ Emmy Award-Winning television series Bluegrass Underground and draws music fans from all over the world. Single day tickets, weekend passes and VIP packages (which include special viewing access, commemorative swag, meals, lodging, transportation and more) are on sale today, Friday, March 6.

Williams will perform his signature solo looping sets throughout the weekend, and will also be joined on stage by two of his eclectic side projects. Friday evening, August 28 features a performance by Keller & The Keels, with Williams joining progressive flatpicker Larry Keel and bassist Jenny Keel to perform a mix of originals and covers in their psychedelic Appalachian bluegrass style. Then, on Saturday, August 29, Williams performs with his Grateful Grass ensemble featuring Charlottesville roots outfit Love Canon, as they celebrate the music of the Grateful Dead.
With a prolific career spanning 25 studio albums, Keller Williams is an artistic force who has a penchant for collaboration and innovation. His unpredictable live shows and ability to seamlessly transition between genres has garnered Williams a large and loyal cult following, as well as national praise from outlets including Billboard, Paste, Acoustic Guitar and Entertainment Weekly, who calls his live show “an enveloping experience.”
In November 2019, Williams released his third Keller & The Keels album, SPEED, which puts the bluegrass treatment to pop and rock songs by celebrated artists including The Doors, Kacey Musgraves, Fiona Apple and Weezer, as well as a few original tracks. The album garnered praise from No Depression, Glide, Live for Live Music and more. Listen to Williams’ song “Medulla Oblongata” via Relix HERE. Williams has also released two Grateful Grass live albums, 2014’s DOS and 2008’s REX. Previous Grateful Grass lineups have featured members of String Cheese Incident, Leftover Salmon, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Hillbenders and The Infamous Stringdusters.
