A night at the Bluebird Cafe
Most nights include two engaging shows. The early show is slightly more relaxed and usually does not include a cover charge. The later show of the night typically brings the bigger headliners to the stage. A typical nightly performance at either show consists of three or four songwriters seated in the center of the room, taking turns playing their songs, as well as accompanying each other instrumentally and on harmony vocals. It is an unforgettable experience and certainly reflects why Nashville Tennessee is known as Music City USA.
The Bluebird is an intimate music venue with only 20 tables. Reservations are accepted on seats at the tables, but most seats at the bar and the church pews are first come, first serve, so it pays to arrive early. All ages are welcome, but only those over 21 are allowed to sit at the bar. The Bluebird feature a full bar along with a varied menu of appetizers, hot & cold sandwiches and salads available until 10pm.
Amy Kurland, the original founder and owner, sold the legendary venue in 2008 to the Nashville Songwriters Association International. The 40+ year old, not-for-profit organization is devoted to the service of songwriters and the craft of songwriting. Kurland saw NSAI’s mission as a way to continue the Bluebird’s contribution to songwriters and the community.
The Bluebird Cafe made its primetime television debut on the ABC Nashville TV Show in October 2012. The Bluebird is significant to the show’s plotline, covering the music industry, the political climate in Nashville, and the key players in both worlds.
