Chris Robinson Brotherhood Offers Debuts At ‘Bluegrass Underground’
Last night the Chris Robinson Brotherhood taped an appearance that will air as part of the seventh season of The Bluegrass Underground PBS television program. The group debuted two songs during their set 333 feet below ground at the naturally formed Cumberland Caverns’ Volcano Room amphitheater near McMinnville, Tennessee.
The CRB started off by presenting new material in the form of a debut rendition of “Behold The Seer.” Next, frontman Chris Robinson led the group featuring guitarist Neal Casal, drummer Tony Leone, keyboardist Adam MacDougall and bassist Jeff Hill, through the original “Forever As The Moon” off last year’s LP Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel, which was followed by “Shadow Cosmos” from the 2016 EP If You Lived Here, You Would Be Home By Now.
A cover of Bob Dylan’s “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue” was punctuated by an impressive solo from Casal. The other debut last night, “Good To Know,” was then offered ahead of a set closing take on “Rosalee.” Friday’s taping also included sets by Conor Oberst, The Mavericks and Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out. PBS will air The Bluegrass Underground season seven episodes this fall.
