The same folks responsible for the Bluegrass Underground concerts in McMinnville and the weekly variety show Music City Roots in Nashville are planning a new monthly concert series in Chattanooga.

Scenic City Roots will debut March 7 at Track 29, 1400 Market St. Featured bands are JohnnySwim, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, The SteelDrivers and the WTM Blues Band. Shows will be streamed live at www.ChattanoogaNow. com, and 30-minute episodes will be shown later on WTCI-TV.

Tickets are $10 general admission, $5 students with valid ID. The show is all-ages, but anyone under 18 must attend with a parent or guardian. Find out more at www.sceniccityroots.com.

Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice, above, will headline an afternoon of music at the next Bluegrass Underground concert, scheduled at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, at Cumberland Caverns in McMinnville, Tenn.

Also featured in the show, which is presented in the Volcano Room, 333 feet below the Earth's surface, will be Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road. General admission is $20, with $4 discounts for groups.

Cave tours may be purchased as an add-on. All tickets are will-call and may be picked up at the box office starting at 9:30 a.m. The first group of patrons will head underground at noon (all times are Central); the site is not handicap-accessible.
