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.

Pot Luck String Band
Van Glynn is a musical virtuoso who is adept at playing any instrument that has strings or keys. He heads up this month’s house band that features Bluegrass and other and traditional country music. They have been a regular house group at the Opry for several years and, like our other house bands, sets the tone for the level of musical talent at our shows.

The Lucky Dogs
If you like old time New Orleans Rhythm and Blues, then you will love this band. This is yet another group that mesmerized our pre-show audience when they performed on our front porch last year. They know and can knock out some of those great old New Orleans standards and will prove to be real crowd pleasers.

Delta Reign
They are returning to the Opry for a second visit.
They have a very unique styling to Bluegrass. Very strong instrumentation and great vocals are presented with very skillful musicians that perform this great musical styling with some elements of jazz bleeding through their music. They have been traveling around the country performing at a number of events and we are fortunate to be able to get them back on the Opry.

Kim Carson
This well-traveled musician has been all over the world presenting her country music to happy fans who groove on the universal language of music. She will be bringing some Honky Tonk style country to our stage for this set. Our audiences love this kind of old time country music and Kim can put it out there better than most. She is a veteran Opry performer all the way back to the old piney Woods Opry and is always a great way to close out the show.
