The SteelDrivers have a long history of performing in Tennessee caves. Since 2008, they have kept an almost annual tradition of playing underground, an exception being a show above The Caverns during the pandemic. The hard-driving bluegrass group stands out as the band with the highest number of cave concerts under their belt. On December 8 & 9, The SteelDrivers will further establish their underground dominance when they return for a 2-night residency deep inside The Caverns to celebrate a 15th Underground Anniversary. Jake Kohn, a 16-year-old rising Americana songwriter from Winchester, Virginia, will open the show.
