Borrowing their name from the Indian Nation Turnpike that connected the more obscure dots of the Sooner state where they cut their artistic teeth, the Troubadours have honed a rowdy, quick-witted sound that’s brought together folks of all stripes. With a raw-boned energy and a knack for capturing slices of life in vivid detail, the band has evolved from acoustic explorations of Townes Van Zandt and Jerry Jeff Walker to full-throttle roadhouse country twang-tinged with a certain punk attitude hanging over from the band’s early years.

Taped deep within the subterranean amphitheater of The Caverns in the majestic Cumberland Mountains near Pelham, TN, this "musical adventure" series features both long-established and emerging artists within a broad spectrum of genres to include Roots-Rock, Jamband, R&B, Soul, Folk, Americana, and yes…even Bluegrass!

Season 8's featured artists also include Brandi Carlile, Billy Strings, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Sam Bush Band, Sweet Lizzy Project, Tim O’Brien, Kathy Mattea, Lettuce, the Rev. Osagyefo Sekou, Mary Gauthier, Flatt Lonesome, and Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper.

This is the first season for Bluegrass Underground in her new home in The Caverns. With a bigger room, broader stage and larger audience, every aspect of The Caverns heightens the experience of great music underground for concert fans and PBS home viewers alike.
