Bluegrass Underground is a radio show recorded live 333 feet below ground at Cumberland Caverns in McMinnville, inside what was named the Volcano Room by the first people to behold the natural amphitheatre. No man-made sound reaches the Volcano Room and the living rock hued amid the eons is jagged and uneven, providing limited echo. Bluegrass Underground is taped once a month and tickets can be purchased either on our website or at the Cumberland Caverns ticket office. 2009 performers include The Travelin’ McCourys w/Ronnie Bowman, Steep Canyon Rangers, and Cherryholmes. The primordial silence and perpetual darkness give way each month to the sounds of the finest music of the greatest bluegrass musicians on earth. Regardless of outside temperature, the Volcano Room is a constant 56 degrees.
