Bluegrass underground

Bluegrass Underground is technically not a music festival, but an Emmy Award-winning PBS television series that is recorded in front of a live audience in The Caverns, a cave location in Pelham, Tennessee. After a hiatus due to the pandemic, the show will tap Season 11 over a three-day weekend in mid-March with an array of notable root and bluegrass acts including Asleep at the Wheel, the Milk Cartons. Kids, Shooter Jennings and Molly Tuttle and Highway Gold. The temperature in the cave stays the same all year round, so if 68 degrees is a problem, bring a light jacket for the shows. The Caverns has concerts all year round in its underground facilities and has a new above ground amphitheater when the weather warms up. (March 18-20. $ 60 and up per day; $ 314 for three-day passes. The Caverns, 555 Charlie Roberts Road, Pelham, Tennessee. 931-516-9724, www.thecaverns.com)
