The Caverns Above- Ground Amphitheater, located in nearby Pelham, will present several exciting outdoor concerts this spring.
The concerts will take place outdoors and in pods on a hillside above The Caverns cave music venue and overlooking the beautiful Payne Cove.
The Caverns is located at 555 Charlie Roberts Road in Pelham.
“It has been a long winter for all of us. We are so excited to get back to playing safe shows again,” Paul Janeway, lead singer for St. Paul and The Broken Bones, said. “We remember when we got to play inside The Caverns not too long ago. What a fun and unique show! We can’t wait to see y’all outside The Caverns this time.”
Janeway said the first 2021 shows represent some of the best in bluegrass music today.
Steep Canyon Rangers will play on March 28. They have expanded their sound into country and Americana.
The SteelDrivers will perform April 10. They were the very first artists to perform on “Bluegrass Underground” more than a decade ago and have appeared on the show on PBS as well.
Today, this hard-edged bluegrass band is a perennial favorite of The Caverns audiences.
Del McCoury is scheduled for April 18. McCoury is the elder statesman of the bluegrass genre and the most awarded artist in the history of the International Bluegrass Music Association with nine IBMA Entertainer of the Year awards.
Presented by Lightning 100, St. Paul and The Broken Bones will perform April 23-24.

Guests will arrive at staggered times, be asked COVID-19 screening questions, receive a temperature check and enjoy the show from two-person, four-person and six-person socially-distanced pods.
Pods will be spaced with a minimum of six feet of distance between each other with 13-foot paths between pods to maintain social distancing.
Attendees are asked to bring their own chairs.
Masks will be mandatory, except when guests are in their pods. All concessions and merchandise will be ordered through an app and delivered contactless to pods, eliminating lines and limiting the need for guests to leave their pods.
While the music plays on above ground, restrooms will be used inside The Caverns to give guests an opportunity to duck below the surface to see the world-famous, subterranean music venue.
The highest priority of The Caverns is the safety of guests, crew and artists.
As such, the venue is following guidance provided by the CDC and Tennessee.
