I didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the local talent appearing at the barn. There was lots of it too. There were over twenty sets and even guest performances by talent from Louisiana. All were great and what impressed me was the age diversity of the performers from early teens to don't mention....

A must see to experience music from the early settlers, an interactive show that allows the viewer to become actively involved in the singing and fun.

My family and I stopped at The Barn to enjoy the singing and playing Friday nite 8/8/14. Like grandkids do (ages18 months to 5 years) they got tired and were not able to keep quiet, so my daughers were taking them back to the hotel to put them to bed. We were followed out by the Emcee and treated very... More

I enjoyed my visit to Jimmy Driftwood Barn. The music and the people playing it were authentic. Since it's a place open to anyone who wants to sing and there is no fee charged, those singing really put a lot of themselves on the songs, they were there to share music and communicate feelings, not to make a profit. Highly... More

Good music, friendly people that are very talented and you will not be sorry for going. There will be folk music, country music and a lot of gospel. One may even hear a 'twang' of Blue Grass every once in a while. I highly recommend this show to everyone. Young, old and there are usually young people on stage performing... More

If you want to see a lot of local talent perform, don't miss this one. Lots of performers, lots of variety...and it is FREE!! They do pass around a basket for donations.

If you remember the Battle of New Orleans tune by Jimmy Driftwood then now you know who Jimmy was. They put on a good show with local people and if you play or sing then get there early and get on the schedule and you too can perform on stage.. It's just a good time and the cost is a... More
