Taped 333-feet below ground, deep inside Tennessee's Cumberland Caverns, this 12-part "musical adventure" series features both well-established and top emerging artists within the broad spectrum of Bluegrass, Jamgrass, Roots &Americana genres. Singer/violinist Andrew Bird has brightened the national Alternative scene for more than 15 years. With his unique indie-folk rock and a cameo performance by Tift Merritt, "Danse Caribe" from Episode Two of BLUEGRASS UNDERGROUND Season Three is a brilliant sample from a most unpredictable show (in the best way, of course).

Danse Caribe lyrics

 

Lyrics

You were a shameless child
Bandied by stiff cross currents
Anything but mild
Yes and no just simply weren't
Invented yet
Oh yes oh no
Then one day you'd had it
Exiled your close advisers
Ousted your dog-eared rabbits
You're through with pacifiers
You're through with pacifiers now
Here we go mistaking clouds for mountains
Here's the thing that brings the sparrows to the fountains
Here's the thing that makes you run for the highlands
Here we go mistaking clouds for mountains
Autonomy
