For two nights on February 18 and March 18, 2023, the renowned Bluebird Cafe, gaining worldwide recognition for launching the careers of Maren Morris, Taylor Swift, Garth Brooks, and others, will bring its signature 'In The Round' songwriter show format to the intimate setting of Bishop's Lodge.
SANTA FE, N.M. (PRWEB) December 07, 2022
Bishop’s Lodge, Auberge Resorts Collection, the historic luxury resort and thoughtfully restored landmark in the UNESCO Creative City of Santa Fe, today announces it has partnered with Nashville’s legendary listening room, The Bluebird Cafe. While the venue is known as a haven to songwriters, The Bluebird Cafe brings its magic to a limited number of off-site locations. A deeply rooted destination for art and creativity, Bishop’s Lodge, Auberge Resorts Collection is known to curate one-of-a-kind experiences in a spectacular natural setting, and the partnership with The Bluebird Cafe will be no exception. For two nights on February 18 and March 18, 2023, the renowned venue, which has gained worldwide recognition for launching the careers of Maren Morris, Taylor Swift, Garth Brooks, and many others, will bring its signature 'In The Round' songwriter show format to the intimate setting of the resort’s Bunkhouse.
Located in a small strip mall outside of downtown Nashville, the 90-seat Bluebird Cafe is unassuming in appearance. Still, some of the most significant songwriters and artists have performed in its room, taking turns playing, collaborating, and telling stories behind their songs. On any given night, the audience may hear from artists like Lee Brice, Vince Gill, or Carly Pearce, “heroes behind the hits” like Tony Arata, Chris DeStefano and Liz Rose, or perhaps a budding singer-songwriter just beginning to make their mark. It is a captivating experience that few forget, and one that reflects why Nashville is known as Music City.
In true Bluebird fashion, three world-renowned songwriters will take a seat in the center of the Bunkhouse’s Great Room, a warm setting that brings friends and family together around a two-story stone fireplace. On February 18th (featuring Kelly Archer, Deric Ruttan & Adam Hambrick) and March 18th (featuring Kent Blazy, Danny Myrick & Leslie Satcher), the songwriters will share their chart-topping music and stories behind how the songs came to be. This unique musical experience and collaboration intends to cultivate and inspire Bishop’s Lodge, Auberge Resorts Collection’s community.
Performances on both nights will begin at 6 p.m., with doors opening at 5 p.m. We will have inspiring beverages in the Bunkhouse before the show begins. The VIP tickets will entail a brief post-show gathering with the songwriters before heading over for an artful dinner prepared by Executive Chef Pablo Peñalosa.
Tickets are available through a one-night VIP Overnight Package, which can be built upon additional nights for travelers or serve as an ideal staycation for locals. The package starts at $1,319++ and includes room accommodation, two show tickets, access to the pre-show reception and after-show dinner, The Bluebird Cafe poster signed by the songwriters, a welcome amenity, and another surprise takeaway.

About The Bluebird Cafe
Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe is a small but mighty venue where up and coming songwriters and artists build their careers and rise to fame. Over the past 40 years, the tiny room has developed into one of the most significant music venues in the world where all songwriters are welcomed and supported, from novice to established hit-makers. Artists such as Kathy Mattea, Garth Brooks, Faith Hill and Taylor Swift have had career moments along with countless hit songwriters whose music is represented on a wide range of charts.
A typical show at The Bluebird features three or four songwriters performing ‘In the round,’ a format made famous at the club where the performers take turns playing their original music, sharing the stories behind their songs, accompanying each other instrumentally, and vocally. The venue’s “SHHHH” policy establishes it as a listening room where audience members are encouraged to pay attention to the song itself – and since it accommodates only 90 people per show, the demand is high and the room sells out in minutes.
Over 80,000 people visit the venue annually; many of them as a result of seeing the Bluebird on television, in news pieces, The Foo Fighters' documentary, Sonic Highways, the feature film, The Thing Called Love, or on the ABC hit drama, Nashville. The Bluebird Cafe has been featured in publications such as Southwest Spirit, National Geographic Traveler, The New York Times and Rolling Stone magazine where the club was voted one of the Top 10 Best Clubs in America. Most recently, the venue’s story was featured in the 2019 documentary, BLUEBIRD, available on streaming channels including iTunes and Amazon.
