Cumberland Caverns: Have You Ever Attended A Concert In A Cave?

I happen to have a love for caverns. I’m not necessarily into spelunking because I’m just too lazy for all that but I love me a good cave tour! Throw a music concert on top of that and I’m all over it! Except I’ve never heard of such a thing… until now. So, now, I really want to attend one at Cumberland Caverns and have it on my to-do list for the next year.
