The Bluebird Cafe
The Bluebird Cafe is one of the world’s preeminent listening rooms that has gained worldwide recoginition as a songwriter’s performance space where the “heroes behind the hits” perform their own songs; songs that have been recorded by chart-topping artists in all genres of music. The venue presents two shows a night, seven nights a week, with our In The Round shows typically scheduled Tuesday-Saturday, our established Open Mic on Mondays at 6 PM and our audition-only Sunday Writers Nights on Sundays at 8 PM.
Located in a small strip mall outside of downtown Nashville, the 90 seat venue is unassuming in appearance, but some of the most significant songwriters and artists have performed in this room. Our reputation as a listening room originates from the acoustic, singer/songwriter style music that is performed here nightly. Our shows are supported by The Bluebird’s “Shhh policy” which is designed to support an environment where both the audience and the songwriters can concentrate on the songs. Our patrons repeatedly tell us that they are captivated by hearing songs performed by the creators themselves and the stories behind how the songs came to be in such a quiet, intimate, and unique venue.
