Bluegrass Underground
Genre: Arts
Taped 333-feet below ground within the majestic Volcano Room deep inside Tennessee's Cumberland Caverns, this "musical adventure" series features both well-established and top emerging artists within the broad spectrum of Bluegrass, Jamgrass, Roots and Americana genres. Artists include Old Crow Medicine Show, Andrew Bird, Yonder Mountain String Band, Ben Sollee, The SteelDrivers, Johnnyswim, BeauSoleil, Leon Russell, North Mississippi Allstars, The Wood Brothers, Alison Brown Quartet, and the Infamous Stringdusters.

Below is a list of broadcasts scheduled to air in the next 60 days on any of our three channels.

Episode #407
The Gibson Brothers
For their amazing harmonies and whip-crack musicianship, this band claimed the International Bluegrass Music Association's 2013 Entertainer of the Year, Vocal Group, and Song. To top it off, brother Eric was named Songwriter of the Year. The previous year the brothers won the IBMA Entertainer of the Year Award, and the year before that won the prestigious 2011 IBMA Album of the Year Award and Vocal Group of the Year. These seasoned pros' accolades barely do justice to the bluegrass sound that is all their own.

Episode #408
Davina & The Vagabonds
Swinging through multiple generations and genres of New Orleans grooves, this band is propelled by its frontwoman's megawatt personality. Davina's live performance must be seen to be believed. She is the rare dichotomy of the self-professed shy, reserved and tentative personality juxtaposed with a primal piano prowess and look-at-me brass that embodies the idea of "showmanship." In her, Mae West meets Bette Midler meets Dr. John.

Keller Williams With The Traveling Mccourys
Eclectic jazz, funk, reggae, alt-rock guitar virtuoso and a "one-man jam-band" for his use of multiple instruments looping - Keller Williams joins the stellar Traveling McCourys (legendary Del McCoury's sons) in a bold leap of collaboration. When the peanut butter hits the chocolate, the result is a fearless homage to bluegrassers testing the boundaries of their genre with a high-voltage jolt. Truly a marriage of musicianship and mutual esteem.

Shovels & Rope
The duo that stole the show at last year's Americana Music Awards, Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent won Emerging Artist honors, as well as Song of the Year for "Birmingham." Featuring gut-sung lyrics hammered out on drums and one guitar like a two-stroke motor, the husband-and-wife duo mixes rowdy folk-rock with roots-basted ballads, sparking the buzz of the growing wave that is the Americana roots phenomenon.

Episode #411
Hayes Carll
This folk-rock troubadour's work is steeped in the Texas songwriting tradition, infusing sharply written songs with clever humor and improbable romance, all while skewering pomposity, hypocrisy and small-minded thinking. Winner of American Songwriter's #1 Song, Americana Music Association's #1 Album, AMA's Artist of the Year Nominee, and solidly set in the "Best of" lists from Rolling Stone and SPIN as well as a New York Times Critics Choice, Carll is one to watch - and one to listen to.

Michael Martin Murphey
A multiple Grammy nominee with six gold albums and a long list of writing and recorded hits with more than 30 albums to his credit, Murphey has for four decades stirred up his own particular stew of folk, country-rock, pop and Western music. From his acclaimed "cosmic cowboy" debut album, Geronimo's Cadillac, to wildly popular hits "Wildfire" and "Carolina in the Pines" to recent Grammy nominations for Best Bluegrass Album for his collaboration with former New Grass Revival's Pat Flynn, Michael Martin Murphey's talents stretch as wide as the prairie sky.

Singer/songwriter/offhand raconteur ... Taylor's songs have been covered by an eclectic array of pop/rock/country legends: Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Juice Newton, The Troggs, Anne Murray, The Hollies, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, Billy Idol, Bruce Springsteen and many more. Most famous for the cathartic sing-along "Wild Thing" (one of Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of all time) and the super hit "Angel of the Morning," today Taylor brings a calm and even-voiced veteran's narrative to 60 years of music.

Widespread Panic
Filling the footsteps of giants such as the Allman Brothers and jamband saints The Grateful Dead, 30-year road veterans Widespread Panic are, unquestionably, one of the most successful jambands of a generation. Melding southern rock, blues-rock, funk and hard rock, the band has risen to elite status among American jam bands. Having embarked on The Wood Tour, their first- ever completely acoustic shows, WP dropped in Underground. An "internet only" ticket, the Bluegrass Underground website survived 50,000 hits per minute; the show sold out in less than 30 seconds! A rare tour from a top band in a fantastically unique venue promises stellar "appointment television. "

Episode #406
Lucinda William
Winner of Grammys for Best Country Song and Best Contemporary Folk Album and an enormous presence in the diversified world of deep, literary songwriters, Williams is a groundbreaking, truly unapologetic architect of that simmered blend of country, blues, folk, off-the-shoulder rock 'n' roll that has been born as the Americana genre. Mainstream Nashville knows her as the writer of Mary Chapin Carpenter's hit "Passionate Kisses," but this highly acclaimed, independent songsmith can - and will - do it all ... her way.

David Grisman Folk Jazz Trio
Grisman is absolutely a founder of newgrass and new acoustic music. Nicknamed "Dawg" by his close collaborator, Jerry Garcia, Grisman has crafted a mixture of bluegrass-centered Django Reinhardt/ Stephane Grappelli jazz affectionately known by decades of avid fans as "Dawg Music." Co-founder of the seminal neo-traditionalist band Old and in the Way, and now leading his jazz trio, Grisman is a permanent and beloved feature on the landscape of American neo-traditional culture.

Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit
Until recently known as a former member of the Drive-By Truckers, Jason Isbell serves as the point of the Americana spear and one of the country's absolute best young singer-songwriters. Unrepentantly southern, his carefully crafted songs may feel raw, yet are renowned for simultaneously inspiring and intimidating musicians and critics alike. An Americana Music Award Winner, Isbell's new album Southeastern is on NPR radio's 50 Favorite Albums of 2013 - no small feat.

One genre-breaking standout performer this season is the ever-amazing virtuoso cellist Dave Eggar. A phenomenal innovator in his own right, Eggar is joined in the Underground by singer Amy Lee (of multi-platinum selling artists Evanescence fame) and the innovative dance troupe Hammerstep ("American Idol"), mixing traditional Irish step dance with hip-hop and tap. The sum is an electrifying, cross-cultural event born in the crucible of the caverns.
