Gurf Morlix @ The Bluebird Cafe / Nashville TN / November 28, 2018

How can you forget a name like Gurf Morlix? It’s one I’ve long heard and remembered in connection with his work as both guitarist and producer for Lucinda Williams. However, by the time I saw Lucinda live in concert, he was no longer in her band. Sadly, I’d also never connected to his solo career. […]

CLASSIC CONCERT: Al Stewart @ The Bluebird Cafe / Nashville TN / June 16, 2003

The fact that we waited outside well past the door opening time should have clued us in that the extended sound check meant we were about to see and hear something special. Maybe the feint sound of the saxophone we heard should have tipped us off. But, none of us were keen enough to know […]

Peter Case, Kevn Kinney & Robyn Hitchcock @ The Bluebird Cafe / Nashville TN / May 2, 2018

But, come to think about, sitting just a few feet away from him while I noshed at the Bluebird […]

James McCartney @ The Bluebird Cafe / Nashville TN / June 11, 2013

I would have gone to see James McCartney at the Bluebird even if his famous father wasn’t playing Bonnaroo just three nights later.  I’ll admit that I hoped Macca might find Nashville’s famed venue to be the perfect place to see his 35-year old, only son perform. He didn’t. Rare for the Bluebird, advance tickets […]
