Underground Bluegrass!

No, not illicit music played in some questionable bar, but rather bluegrass music played  333 feet below the surface at Cumberland Caverns near McMinnville, Tennessee.  These caverns have hosted a series of concerts named "Bluegrass Underground" since 2008.  Many of the top bluegrass performers have appeared in this venue.  We finally were able to attend a performance on July 9, 2016.  For this performance, two groups played, The Molly Tuttle Band and The Boxcars.

This is a real limestone cave with stalactites, stalagmites and even a waterfall.

But how many caverns have a large crystal chandelier?

They even have a "merchandise" table.
