Go deep inside The Caverns for “Brandi Carlile in Concert – A Bluegrass Underground Special” to hear the roots rocker tell personal stories of love, life and loss through her songs on Arizona PBS on Friday, August 3 at 8 p.m.
Self taught, Seattle-based and Grammy nominated for Americana Album of the Year, Brandi Carlile’s style revolves around pop, rock, alt-country and folk. Her songs serve up personal stories of parents and childhood; of divorce, marriage and religion; of love and of loss. Here are stories of forgiveness, reconciliation, of climbing out of bed every morning open to love.
From Bluegrass Underground’s new subterranean home within The Caverns, PBS Arts presents a very special performance by the amazing Carlile and her band. With the singing Hanseroth twins for backup, a four-piece string section, driving guitars and rhythm section, Carlile’s set offers up tender ballads, soulful lyrics, complex arrangements, searing roots rock — something for everyone.
Bluegrass Underground’s new, permanent home, The Caverns, lies deep within an ancient limestone cave system at the base of Monteagle Mountain in Tennessee’s beautiful Cumberland Plateau. For ten years Bluegrass Underground has presented a stellar list of artists curated from the heart of the American experience, hosting the best of Roots-Rock, Jam Band, R&B, Gospel, Indie-Folk, Soul and yes, even Bluegrass.
Even with all these legendary artists and icons, it’s still a wonder when lighting strikes inside the cave. Brandi Carlile is that lightning, captured for PBS in this one-hour special.
