(ON PAUSE) Open Mic hosted by Barbara Cloyd

Presented by TEMPORARILY CLOSED The Bluebird Cafe at TEMPORARILY CLOSED The Bluebird Cafe, Nashville TN

(ON PAUSE) Open Mic hosted by Barbara Cloyd

The Bluebird Cafe takes phone in sign-ups for their Monday Night Open Mic.

Statement from The Bluebird Cafe:

We, at The Bluebird Cafe, have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our venue. We have been monitoring the news and recommendations from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and feel this is the most appropriate course of action to keep our songwriters, audience members, and staff both healthy and safe.

Due to our venue’s small size, we feel this is the only surefire way to do so. As songwriter Don Schlitz once wrote, “you have to know when to hold them and know when to fold them.” Over the next two weeks, we will be evaluating the CDC’s information as well as updates from Nashville city health officials and hope to be able to reopen our doors next month.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during these challenging times. Please know that we would be open, enjoying wonderful songs and stories with all of you if we felt it was safe for everyone.

Please check our website and social media channels for further updates.

Sign up for the Open Mic night! In order to sign up please call (615) 943-8168 between the hours of 11am and Noon CST on Monday. You will not be able to leave a message; you need to keep trying ’til you get through to someone who will put you on the list. The names of the first 25 songwriters who call in to sign-up will be taken (each songwriter is allowed one guest). Writers who are on the list must be at the club and have checked in with the host by 5:15pm on that Monday evening in order to perform.

Please remember the following guidelines as they remain in place: each participating writer will get the chance to play 1-2 original songs, solo or accompanied by no more than two others on stage. Drums and backing tracks are not allowed. There is a house Kawai digital piano that is available to use (88-weighted keys).

PLEASE NOTE: Even with the advanced sign-ups, priority is not given to out-of-town/out-of-state songwriters.

This show is sponsored by the RIAA.

Be sure to check the calendar for schedule changes.
