Land Trust’s Three Caves | 901 Kennamer Dr SE, Huntsville, AL 35801
Three Caves is located within the Land Trust’s Monte Sano Nature Preserve and has become one of the most unique event venues in North Alabama. For the past 12 years, the Concerts at Three Caves series has played host to such award winning entertainers as Delta Rae, Moon Taxi, Tom Braxton and Grammy Award winners, The SteelDrivers, Claire Lynch and the Legendary Muscle Shoals Review. The “not so secret” 700 seat outdoor venue is a former limestone quarry conveniently located just two miles from downtown Huntsville and gets its name from the three cave openings that accentuate and surround the venue. Three Caves has a storied entertainment history including where the band Kansas filmed their music ballad “Reason to Believe” and scenes from the 1979 post-apocalyptic move “Ravagers” were shot.
Events are held in the “bowl” outside the mine’s three large openings, which offers a comfortable ~55°F temperature year-round. The stage, surrounded on three sides by limestone rock walls, provides an unforgettable backdrop and a one-of-a-kind experience for concert-goers. As the sunset sets and the lights begin to accentuate the interior of the three caves and the exterior of the bowl, one gets the true sense that they are in store for a truly magical musical experience. Proceeds from the events held at Three Caves help the Land Trust in furthering their goals of land preservation and conservation in north Alabama.
In an interview with national music critic and Huntsville resident Matt Wake, Texas-based, saxophonist Tom Braxton described Concerts at Three Caves as “a unique venue”. “The acoustics are great, the audience is up-close-and-personal; I love playing settings like that”. “When I went out front while we were sounding checking, I was like, ‘Wow, this is like some symphony shell in Australia or something.” Tom’s sentiments are echoed by most every entertainer that has played the venue.
