The Abita Springs Opry is a series of music concerts held six times a year and is produced by a nonprofit organization, Abita Opry Inc. The show has the mission of preserving and presenting Louisiana "Roots" music. Our music is played primarily acoustically, in its original form.

Our main thrust is old-time Country, Bluegrass, and traditional Southern Gospel music, but we often present other forms of traditional Louisiana music such as Cajun, Zydeco, Irish, or other types that reflect the many different groups of people who are part of our diverse culture.

Abita Strings

This home town bluegrass ensemble is one of the Opry's "House Band". Setting the pace for every show, the Abita Strings have taken Traditional to another level.


Jeff and Vida
A return act to the Opry featuring bluegrass and original songs. They wowed the audience at their previous performances. Vida has a remarkable soulful quality to her voice that makes the listener feel the music.

Les Amis

The Porch Rockers
These guys will take you to places long forgotten or memories you'll never forget. When you catch this group you'll hear a groove that only comes from players that know each other like the back of your hand.

Hugh Harris
He came to the opry and was amazed at the crowd. The crowd was amazed about him, as he performed a tribute to Hank Williams and southern gospel. The Abita Strings jumped up on stage to help him bring down the house on his last song.
