The Listening Room

We are home to The Listening Room concert series and was brought to live by a group of volunteers for a simple hope.  For every live performance to create an instant connection with the performer and the audience. There is nothing like hearing a great song performed live with a room full of a captive audience. The Harrell Stage is two feet off the ground with reserved tables surrounding the stage which creates a different and personal experience at every live event.

We host 8-10 concerts throughout the year featuring some of the country’s most amazing performers and support local artists as well.  Whether you like blues, bluegrass, jazz, folk or country, we have a variety of music.
