The Bluebird Café Returns to Bishop’s Lodge - SantaFe.com

Are you ready for round two of the stories behind the songs? A deeply rooted destination for art and creativity, Bishop’s Lodge, Auberge Resorts Collection is known to curate one-of-a-kind experiences in an awe-inspiring natural setting, and the continued partnership with The Bluebird Café is no exception. Stemming from the success of the sold-out inaugural partnership in 2023, Nashville’s top hitmakers will inspire travelers and locals with four performances taking place over two weekends on February 16 – 17 and March 15 – 16, 2024.

Music and art lovers will witness the second rendition of the renowned venue that brings Nashville’s legendary listening room to the UNESCO Creative City of Santa Fe. The Bluebird Café, which has gained worldwide recognition for launching the careers of Maren Morris, Taylor Swift, Garth Brooks, and many others, will once again bring its signature ‘In The Round’ songwriter show format to the intimate setting of the resort’s Bunkhouse.

About the Bluebird Café

While the venue is known as a haven to songwriters, The Bluebird Cafe brings its magic to a limited number of off-site locations. Located in a small strip mall outside of downtown Nashville, the 90-seat venue 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.

World-renowned songwriters will, in true Bluebird fashion, 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 16th and 17th (featuring JT Harding – “Somewhere With You” by Kenny Chesney, and “Sangria” by Blake Shelton; Marv Green – “True” by George Strait and “Amazed” by Lonestar; and Jenn Schott – “7500 OBO” by Tim McGraw and “Better Than You Left Me” by Mickey Guyton) and March 15th and 16th (featuring Victoria Banks – “What Are You Going To Tell Her” by Mickey Guyton and “Saints & Angels” by Sara Evans; Phil Barton – “A Woman Like You” by Lee Brice and “Prayed For This Day” by Chrissy Metz; and Emily Shackleton – “Every Little Thing” and “What He Didn’t Do” by Carly Pearce), 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. Each evening’s concert will feature a unique set list and will conclude with a brief Q&A session before guests have the chance to visit with the performers following the show.

A One-of-a-Kind Experience

Performances will begin each night at 6 p.m., with doors opening at 5 p.m. and guests welcomed with inspiring beverages. Following the memorable performance, guests are invited to SkyFire for a notable dining experience ($95 per person) created by Executive Chef Pablo Peñalosa starting at 7:30 p.m. The artful culinary presentation of Nashville-style barbeque with a New Mexican twist will nod to the Southern roots gathering all for the weekend.

Tickets are available to locals via Eventbrite (starting at $75, up to $195 for VIP tickets) and guests through a two-night Bluebird Café VIP Overnight Package, which can be built upon additional nights for travelers or serve as an ideal staycation for locals.
