Amanda Shires, Keb’ Mo’, Mandy Barnett, More Set For Bluegrass Underground 2019 Season

Amanda Shires, Keb’ Mo’, Mandy Barnett, Glen Hansard, Josh Ritter and Lucero are set to perform on the upcoming ninth season of the acclaimed PBS series Bluegrass Underground in March, live at The Caverns in Pelham, TN.

The Spring season tapings kick off March 29 with performances by Glen Hansard, Josh Ritter and Amanda Shires. Hansard is an Oscar winner and one of the world’s most famous music buskers who rose to fame as a founding member of the Irish band The Frames, and won an Academy Award for Best Song in the film Once. Ritter brings his acclaimed musicianship and songwriting to the underground following a collaboration with the legendary Bob Weir. Shires, the recipient of the Americana Music Association’s 2017 “Emerging Artist” award and a touring member of her husband’s band Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, showcases her uplifting soprano amidst the unparalleled natural beauty of the cave.

Saturday, March 30 at the Caverns will feature Mandy Barnett, who most recently released Strange Conversation, an eclectic mix of Americana, R&B and roots tunes. Raised and musically steeped in the varied music traditions of Memphis, Lucero also brings their country-punk style to the underground venue. American blues musician and four-time Grammy-winner, Keb’ Mo’ will offer up his soulful sounds during the special March taping as well.

“We look forward to welcoming six great artists underground at The Caverns for our 9th season of Bluegrass Underground on PBS,” says Bluegrass Underground creator Todd Mayo. “It’s an honor to shine a national spotlight on such a diverse group of musicians, and we look forward to capturing the magic of some unique live performances in a venue as sublime as The Caverns.”
