Cumberland Caverns Live Welcomes Son Volt

Performing in the World-Famous Volcano Room on Sunday, Sept. 9, at 3 PM (CST)

Cumberland Caverns Live is excited to announce that Son Volt is making a stop at the World-Famous Volcano Room on Sunday, September 9!

Led by the songwriting and vocals of Jay Farrar, Son Volt was one of the most instrumental and influential bands in launching the Alt-Country movement of the 1990’s. A movement that was the precursor to what is now widely referred to as Americana. Son Volt’s acclaimed 1995 debut “Trace” was recently reissued in a special 20th Anniversary Edition.

The band’s latest album “Notes of Blue” was released in February of last year, and Jay spoke to Rolling Stone about the album’s blues inspirations. Jay said,

“Blues is such a foundational element in early country music. Hank Williams learned from a blues musician. My father played Hank Williams songs and I learned to play music from him. So it’s all part of a nice continuum.”

World Famous Volcano Room

This legendary room 333’ below the surface, has caught the attention of the music industry and entire world for its near-perfect acoustics presented with a backdrop of amazing formations and unsurpassed beauty.
