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
Our third house band focuses on traditional Americana with an emphasis on bluegrass. Besides strong instrumentation and vocals, the band's leader Van Glynn always offers some fine historical notes on the songs.

Good Gollies
These two sisters have developed a wonderful blend of bluegrass, and country music. They are currently based in Nashville, but are well traveled and have performed in some prestigious venues. They offer a great stage presence and their harmonies blend perfectly. They follow in the footsteps of singing sibling duets that possess the genetic blending that can only come from siblings.

Lost in the Holler
If you are a fan of very traditional American music, these people will be a real treat. They are yet another group who have displayed their talents on the streets of New Orleans. When they contacted us, and we listened to their music, it was an easy decision to invite them to perform at the Opry.

Dapper Dandies
This is a returning group to our stage. They performed at our annual Music and Arts Festival in the past and were well received by the crowds. If you are a fan of traditional New Orleans Jazz, you will love this group.
