Bluegrass Underground - Live Music from the Volcano Room plus Cave Tour!

Join us for Bluegrass Underground's live show HoneyHoney with Cereus Bright!

If you've not attended a Bluegrass Underground show at Cumberland Caverns in McMinnville, you're in for a real treat! This show has become wildly popular and is now broadcast on radio and on PBS stations across the country! Our day starts with the fascinating cave tour.

From the website: "Bluegrass Underground is a radio show recorded live 333 feet below ground at Cumberland Caverns in McMinnville inside of what was named by the first people to behold the natural amphitheatre, The Volcano Room. Here water and time entwined 3.5 million years ago to create one of the most acoustically pure natural spaces on earth. No man-made sound reaches the Volcano Room and the living rock hued amid the eons is jagged and uneven, providing limited echo."

AGENDA: 
Revised as of 9/1/13...............
If you are carpooling from Nashville please meet at 8:30 am. at Target Hickory Hollow.
Meeting at Cumberland Caverns?- please join us at 10:30 am in McMinnville. 
Our cave tour is scheduled for 11:00 am. 
Lunch from concessions after tour - Music begins @ 1:00 till estimated 4.  We plan to return to Nashville no later than 6 pm.

"Your experience at Bluegrass Underground begins at Cumberland Caverns in the light of day. Tour guides lead you through the cave entrance and into another world. Your subterranean descent takes you past underground pools and waterfalls and to the Volcano Chamber where you will enjoy music in a venue unlike any other you are likely to ever experience! And don’t worry about silencing your cellphone…you won’t find any service here."

Additional Information:

  • The cave stays at a constant 56 degrees. Please bring a fleece jacket and appropriate clothing.
  • Wear appropriate shoes. It's not strenuous but there are several stone staircases.
  • No need to bring chairs or flashlights.
  • Food and beverages can be purchased at the concession stands right off the Volcano Room.
  • Point of contact – I can be reached at cell:[masked]  or home[masked] (Linda Jameson) or by clicking through my name at the top right (host) and emailing me.
  • Refunds available up until 8/16/13.
  • And the best part of all….this is a rain or shine event!

    I got an E mail saying that we are leaving at 8:30, but I see that this still says 7:30. Which one is it? If it is 7:30, someone has sent out a fake notice.

    Hello,
    I have tried to RSVP for the Bluegrass Cave tour on September 7th. I paid through Amazon, but it was unable to connect back to the meetup page after I paid. I have not received any confirmation that I have a reserved spot and I am not on the RSVP yes list. Amazon, however, will not let me pay again because they say that they have already processed my payment. Do you have any record of my payment?
    Thank you,
    Mary Dolan

    August 26, 2013

    • Mary

      Okay thank you! I will trying paying again and will keep an eye on my bank statement to make sure the charge does not post twice.
