Barking Legs Theater

Barking Legs Theater is a superb, intimate concert hall and performance venue that has established a reputation as a great place for musicians and listeners alike. We are known throughout the Southeast as a venue with great acoustics and remarkable intimacy. Barking Legs is a listener’s dream, where each note and word rings clearly, promoting the sort of rapt attention impossible in the typical club or barroom setting. Performers love it! Our 80 fixed seats all have great sight lines and we can accommodate overflow crowds up to 175. Our in-house events offer a concession area and you are invited to take your beverages with you into the theater. And if you’re curious about the name, its origin stems from the “bark leggins” that were worn by scouts and woodsmen of the Appalachian region in the last century.
