Launched in the summer of 2019 in Calgary under its original name Blue Jay Cafe, Blue Jay Sessions is a musically inclined pop-up that gives talented Canadian musicians the opportunity to perform in songwriters circles in intimate settings with fun food and drink along with great live tunes. This live music event series takes place bi-monthly in Calgary at our home venue the Oak Tree Tavern, but every now and again we do take the show on-the-road.

Through Eat North we do our best to celebrate Canada’s great food scene and since music and food practically go hand-in-hand, we thought we’d help showcase the amazing musical talent our country has!

If you're a Canadian musician interested in performing at an upcoming event, please see the submission form below for more details.
