Two years after announcing a 2023 opening, Harken Hall — the Madison venue formerly known as Roots Barn that was originally supposed to be called Timberhawk Hall — will open this fall at 514 Madison Station Blvd in Madison.

Veteran music video and television producer Jamie Amos has taken the helm as president of Harken Hall. Since the venue’s inception as The Roots Barn nearly two decades ago, the soon-to-open Harken Hall venue will be affiliated with a group of investors led by Patrick Kennedy, based in Tennessee and Texas.

The venue will be anchored by a 700-seat concert hall in a 12,000-square-foot main room and an adjacent recording studio. It is expected to accommodate performances, corporate events, corporate meetings and weddings, among many community events.

“We want this to be a place where people can create and listen to good music, enjoy socializing, be treated with hospitality and feel comfortable. When you have a multifunctional structure like this, art and interest in art tend to intersect. Ideally, Harken Hall will be a seedbed and a focal point for a neighborhood where artists can create and collaborate,” Amos said in a press release.

The venue was previously planned to host a concert from WMOT’s “Music City Roots,” but the parties parted ways in late 2021 due to unspecified “fundamental creative differences.”

Harken Hall was built from 100-year-old barn wood reclaimed from Big Timberworks in Montana. The venue will also partner with Compost Nashville and will not sell plastic water bottles, cutlery or straws; instead, it will use aluminum beverage cans.

The press statement added:

“Harken Hall stands out for its elevated aesthetics, capabilities and design. The event space is predominantly constructed of wood, while the interior walls are clad in corral planks from the same wood package to complement the carefully designed acoustic environment. Resawn wood finishes the internal structure to provide a resonant listening environment, minimizing reflections by carefully absorbing sound waves, similar to a recording studio. The exterior of the building is finished in stone to reflect some of the historic churches in the area. The main concert hall also has built-in broadcast and streaming capabilities.”

Harken Hall reservations for Fall 2024 are currently available. For more information, visit http://harkenhall.com.
