January Jams

Barter Theatre

This series of concerts on the Barter Theatre stage showcases nationally recognized artists. On Fridays and Saturdays in January, Abingdon Music Experience presents a uniquely intimate concert experience with legendary musicians at the historic Barter Theatre. Since its inception in 2011, January Jams has featured artists like the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Ricky Scaggs, Mavis Staples, and Jason Isbell, to name a few.

Barter Theatre is traditionally "dark" in January, so it's the perfect venue for a winter concert series. January Jams puts Grammy-Award winning artists on stage each weekend of the month. An intimate venue with just 500 seats, Barter offers a unique experience with these musicians that cannot be replicated anywhere else.

The 2020 January Jams lineup will be announced in November 2019.  To receive an earlybird ticket announcement, sign up for the email newsletter at
