Video: Greensky Bluegrass Performs 'Black Muddy River' Underground


Greensky Bluegrass must have been floating on air after performing a Dead fueled-set with Phil Lesh in California.  But after a cross-country road trip post-show, the band found themselves literally underground... but it didn't stop the GD hits from coming.

The band performed at McMinnville, Tennessee's Cumberland Caverns on March 29th as part of the Bluegrass Underground series with Railroad Earth and Leftover Salmon. The unique concert, which took place 333 feet underground (although lit by chandelier) was filmed for PBS broadcast later this year.

To cap their 10 song set, the band reprised the Garcia/Hunter classic "Black Muddy River" from the Terrapin Crossroads appearance, Paul Hoffman's earnest delivery and the bands' back country sound doing justice to both the original recording and the unique setting.
