Get ready for some lively Saturday afternoons this August, as the Abita Springs Opry series returns to the French Market. Every Saturday will feature two shows, from 12:00p.m. to 3:00p.m.
Held six times a year since 2002, the Abita Springs Opry series is aimed at presenting the best of Louisiana’s acoustic “roots” music.
The music presented varies from old-time country and bluegrass to Southern Gospel, Zydeco and Cajun. Shows are great opportunities for musicians from New Orleans and surrounding areas to present traditional forms of music and for the audiences to discover musical genres and bands from different parts of Louisiana.
The line up for the French Market Abita Springs Opry series is as follows:
The Lucky Dogs
Big Daddy O
The Porch Rockers
Pot Luck String Band
Manuel’s Hot Tamales
The Farmers Market String Band
Last Chance String Band
The Bad Pennies Pleasure Makers
The Steve Anderson Group
