Songwriter Round At Legendary Bluebird Cafe

Songwriter Round At Legendary Bluebird Cafe presents Jane Bach, Sandra Piller, Kati Mac, and Billy Lee

A country music tradition, the songwriter round is taken to new heights at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and coming on Saturday, October 6, songwriters from California, New York, and Nashville join for "Jane Bach and Friends" at the legendary venue.

"This will be a fun evening featuring songs that were hits and some that might soon become hits," Bach states. Bach is the writer of "The Last One to Know," a number one hit for Reba McEntire, and also composed hits for Jo Dee Messina, Ray Price, and others.

Frequently performing at writer's rounds in cities from coast to coast, Bach will serve as host as well as one of the evening's singers. "A writer's round is not only good fun," says Bach, "it's also one of the best ways for an audience to get up close and personal with writers and their songs."

Performing with Bach will be Shady Hill Records (www.shadyhillrecords.com) artist Sandra Piller, who is also a big supporter of the writer's round format. "These evenings are always full of so many good feelings as writers share their work from the past and present," says Piller, who will select numbers from her most recent album, "Days Like These," as well as from her new 6-song EP, "Love Goes On," dedicated to her late husband, Michael Piller, writer-producer of "Star Trek DS9" and "Star Trek Voyager."

On stage with Piller and Bach will be Kati Mac and Billy Lee. Mac is the Emmy-nominated NYC singer-songwriter whose song, "Only Love," was the theme for the daytime drama, "Guiding Light." "Even if you haven't heard one of my songs, you've heard me singing on numerous commercial jingles," Mac points out. In addition, she has toured or recorded with Sting, Meat Loaf, and Nona Hendryx. Billy Lee will be singing some of his songs, including "The One," which became a Top Five hit for Gary Allan.

The classic format of the round, which is well-known to Nashville audiences, features all songwriters on stage. One plays a song, followed by the next writer, and the next, and so on. It encourages interaction between writers as well as the audience and "It results in a good time for all," Bach notes.

The Bluebird Cafe has a rich history of hosting many of Nashville's finest songwriters. "Everybody in country music knows about the Bluebird," states Piller. "Probably everyone in the music business knows, too," adds Bach.

Showtime for the "Jane Bach and Friends" event is 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 6, and reservations are recommended. The Bluebird Cafe is located at 4104 Hillsboro Road, Nashville, TN 37215. Phone is (615) 383-1461.
