Shawn Barker is considered the pre-eminent Johnny Cash tribute artist as well as an accomplished musician and singer/songwriter. Having an uncanny resemblance to the younger Cash, Barker’s portrayal is stunningly accurate and remarkably authentic. American Music Theatre is proud to welcome all types of shows and concerts to our stage. Occasionally during a performance, audience members will show their enthusiasm by standing and dancing, or may approach the stage, especially when encouraged by the performers to do so. Please know that AMT will make every effort to ensure the safety of all guests, while presenting an enjoyable experience for everyone. With this in mind, AMT staff reserves the right to require patrons to remain seated.

“Our favorite is the Margaret Bitzer Suite. My wife fell in love with that room. When I make a reservation, she always has me ask for that room. It’s updated just enough – it still holds that old charm with the period furniture and decorative items, but has all the conveniences. We love the room and the location, with the Amish market close by and the bakery. You can grab a sandwich and take it back to your room. And the way they treat you – I don’t have a word other than ‘great.’”
— Terry White, Morristown, TN
Shed the stresses of today’s world and step back in time. Our 18th Century Inn is listed in both the Lancaster County Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places. What used to be an 11-room Lancaster County bed and breakfast built in 1852 has been expanded to a 24-room Amish Country inn. Each of the meticulously-decorated rooms and suites are tastefully decorated with period furnishings and modern amenities, and are located in four carefully-preserved historic buildings in the quaint village of Bird-in-Hand, PA. They provide the perfect retreat for relaxation in comfort and privacy, while putting you within walking distance of our popular Restaurant & Smorgasbord and our Bakery & Cafe, as well as a local farmer’s market, antique gallery, old-fashioned country store, hot air balloon rides and more. Treat yourself to our wine-tasting package or, for an authentic Lancaster County experience, ask about our Farm-to-Fork and Harvest tours. And our innkeeper is always glad to make suggestions to help you get the most from your stay.
