Canmore Cave Tours hosting Christmas concerts 100 metres underground

Nov 30 2018, 9:29 pm

This is a bit cooler than your usual “underground” music scene.

For four days this December, Canmore Cave Tours will be hosting their Spirit in the Mountain concert series, which will see various music groups performing live 100 metres underground.

The venue is Rat’s Nest Cave, and the performances will be by Calgary’s own indie-rock group The Silkstomes, western Canadian music duo Trundled, Canmore native Seth Anderson, and folk-rock band Elk Run & Riot over the course of four days.

Attendees will also enjoy the thrill of descending underground into the heart of Grotto Mountain, and spending the evening in the natural, cavernous halls.

Tickets are available at $130 per night, and guests are welcome to purchase passes for any—and all—of the performances.
