This was the best Bluegrass Underground to date!  Cadillac Sky is an incredible new band on the Skaggs Family Records label.  Virtuosic playing is just the beginning… these guys have perhaps the best on stage presence I’ve ever seen in a bluegrass band.  Combine that with top notch singing and songwriting and you have a band that will surely forge great paths in the bluegrass world over the upcoming years.  This was my second time seeing Cadillac Sky and they blew me away both times.

The Farewell Drifters have such a great sound!  I’ve seen them many times and they always sound great.  Smooth harmonies and catchy back to basics melodies make their songs instant classics!  Clayton is also quite the monster on guitar… no doubt comes from shredding all those metal licks in his early years.

The Silver Jews Final Performance – Bluegrass Underground Radio Show

The Silver Jews Final Performance - Bluegrass Underground Radio Show

The final Silver Jews show took place in the Volcano Room of Cumberland Caverns for a radio show titled “Bluegrass Underground.”  This was a detour from the Bluegrass Underground format in a number of ways… the obvious being that in absolutely no way is this a bluegrass related band… they were fully plugged in and with drums if you can imagine that!  The show went very well and the fans were very appreciative that they get to see the apparent last show of The Silver Jews, a band with an impressive underground following but not much public presence,  in such a spectacular venue.
