Bluebird Cafe Documentary To World Premiere At SXSW Film Festival

Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe is the subject of a new in-depth documentary that has been selected for a world premiere at the prestigious SXSW Film Festival. The festival runs March 8-17, 2019 in Austin, Texas.

Directed by Brian Loschiavo and produced by Loschiavo and Bluebird Cafe GM Erika Wollam Nichols, the 90-minute film features unforgettable performances by Taylor Swift, Garth Brooks, Maren Morris, Vince Gill, Jason Isbell and many more. Cinematographer Jeff Molyneaux captured the original stories of music royalty and followed emerging singer-songwriters as they chased their dreams for the film.

“The Bluebird Cafe is home to thousands of musical storytellers, both established writers and new rising stars, and yet its own story has never been told in film,” said Nichols. “We’re excited to have captured the Bluebird’s history, through stories and songs from many folks whose lives have intersected with and were changed by their performance at this tiny, accidental landmark.”
