Film Falmouth: Bluebird

From its inception, The Bluebird Cafe has been anything but ordinary. By day, it was filled with “ladies who lunch.” By night, it was a smoke-filled rock club for bands and troubadours on the fringes of a predominantly country-fueled Music City.

Always at the center is Amy Kurland, who opened the cafe in 1982, unsuspecting that it would become the most influential listening room in America. Featuring performances by Taylor Swift, Garth Brooks, and many more, BLUEBIRD explores the past and present of an accidental landmark and the emerging singer-songwriters who chase their dreams.

Directed by Brian Loschiavo • USA • 2019 • 89 mins.
