Bluebird Café Live at 35


Last week, songwriters from the iconic Bluebird Café in Nashville, including Charles Esten (who plays Deacon on ABC’s hit show, Nashville), Kim Richey, and the country music duo Striking Matches, performed a Live at 35 inflight concert. The Live at 35 featured original songs and brought a few of Nashville’s favorite tunes to new heights. Once the flight landed in New York from Nashville, the songwriters did an iconic Bluebird Café “In the Round” performance at the Southwest Porch at Bryant Park. Porch visitors got a taste of the format made famous at the club where the performers take turns playing their original music, sharing the stories behind the songs, and accompanying each other instrumentally and with backing vocals.
