“Songs and Stories” at the Blue Room is an opportunity to experience visiting and local songwriters in an ‘up close and personal’ concert setting. Carolyn Sullivan, co-owner of the newly restyled room at the Bottle Cap Lounge has planned on creating this listening room event for years. A perfect synergy has developed with CW Colt, a Singer/Songwriter of local and National renown, who has been promoting Songwriters in Key West for decades.
CW says, “It’s a great match for sure….. to have a venue where you can hear the songs and the stories behind them. You‘ll get the inside story about what was going on in the writer’s mind and life when the song came to life. And at The Blue Room every seat is perfect for the songwriter experience, where the words matter.”
Doors will open at 7:00 PM with Meet-Greet-Eat with the show beginning at 8:00 PM. Entry price is $25 Advance on-line purchase, and $30 at the door. Guests will enjoy an opportunity to meet and mingle with the artists and will receive complimentary gift bags with CDs and more.
