The Blue Door, founded by Greg Johnson in 1993 when he relocated to Oklahoma City from Austin, Texas, evolved into a top-notch listening room for the best talent in Americana music in the area.

Description from the Blue Door website: (excerpt from Greg Johnson)

“Since those early years, we have grown to become Oklahoma’s premiere venue for performing songwriters, hosting such legends as Jimmy Webb, Joe Ely, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, David Lindley and Tom Rush. We love working with new songwriters who are developing their audience and always welcome the best in bluegrass, folk, rock, country and blues.”
