May 20th Spring Finale: Last Chance Bluegrass Band, Kass and Friends, The Magnolia Sisters, and The Zion Harmonizers
Last Chance Bluegrass Band: One of our regular house bands, the Last Chance performs straight out bluegrass. Eddie Arnold is a fine banjo picker, and has surrounded himself with other fine bluegrass musicians. They have proven to be a mainstay at the Opry, and provide the energy necessary to start the show and set the bar for the other acts.
Kass and Friends: Cassie Krebs is one of the strongest musicians and vocalists in this area. She is highly accomplished and possesses a very strong and unique vocal style. She performs regularly on the North Shore, and has been on our stage previously. She is very versatile and performs a variety of styles of music. Her familiarity with our show will be the catalyst for her bringing a great fit for the show.
The Magnolia Sisters: Ann Savoy is a member of one of the leading Cajun musical groups in Louisiana, the Savoy Family Band. She and her husband, Mark Savoy are highly accomplished musicians, but Ann has earned her own fame recording with musicians including Linda Ronstadt. She has also organized an all-female group of Cajun Musicians. It has been a long time since her last appearance, and we are happy The Magnolia Sisters can provide some of that good ‘ol uniquely Louisiana Cajun music.
The Zion Harmonizers: These guys are always a favorite of the Opry stage. They are one of the most noteworthy Gospel music groups in existence. They have performed extensively, and under the leadership of the late Sherman Washington initiated the Gospel Music Tent at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. They have been in existence for over seventy five years, and continue to delight audiences with their harmonious, spirit-filled, and high energy gospel music that makes it hard for the audience to stay in their seats. They are always a great group to close out the season.
Other Acts Featured This Season:
March 18: The Steve Anderson Group, The Driskill Mountain Boys, The Old Scratch Sallies, and The Melitauns.
April 22: Three Rivers Cooperative, Crossing Canal, Crazy Whiskey, and The Loose Marbles.
