January Jams at Barter Theatre


January Jams

The Abingdon Music Experience presents January Jams at Barter Theatre, sponsored by Blue Ridge Beverage. This annual series showcases intimate concerts with music legends on stage at the historic Barter Theatre each weekend during the month of January.

January Jams concert series

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.

Past performers have included bluegrass icons like Del McCoury, Ricky Skaggs or John Cowan; legendary divas like Mavis Staples and Bettye LaVette, as well as diverse acts such as the Blind Boys of Alabama, Greensky Bluegrass, and Anderson East.


Now in its 7th year, January Jams brings nationally known musicians to perform in Abingdon for intimate concerts in the 500-seat Barter Theatre. Tickets range from $18 and up, and are available through Barter Theatre’s box office.

Discount ticket packages are available for individual weekends, or for the entire series. Packages only available through Barter Theatre’s box office at (276) 628-3991.

The lineup is typically announced in November each year. Visit www.AbingdonMusicExperience.com for more information.
