BLUEGRASS UNDERGROUND

BLUEGRASS UNDERGROUND - Series 2: The Civil Wars
Air Date: 
Monday, Sep 17th - 7:30pm
Episode Title: 
The Civil Wars

From multiple Grammy wins (Best Folk and Best Country Albums) to the The Hunger Games’ soundtrack, 2012 is a breakout year for the Civil Wars. Their meteoric rise is no surprise to those who have witnessed Joy Williams’ and John Paul White’s artful performances. Intricately woven phrasing and airtight harmonies mark the minimalist duo’s powerfully rendered murder ballads and astonishingly frank songs on the paradoxical nature of love.


Taped 333 feet below ground within the labyrinth of Tennessee’s Cumberland Caverns, this 12-part “musical adventure” series features the top established and emerging artists within the bluegrass, newgrass, gospel, roots and Americana genres. The artist line-up includes the Civil Wars, Jerry Douglas, Sarah Jarosz, Jim Lauderdale, the David Mayfield Parade, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Scott Miller, the Time Jumpers, the Vespers, Del McCoury, Vince Gill, and the Black Lillies.
