One of the longest-running and most well known opries is the Mountain Opry, in the town of Walden on Signal Mountain, TN. This event takes place every Friday evening, holidays included, from 8pm-11pm. Sometimes the show begins early at 7:30pm, if many bands show up to play. You will hear bluegrass, vintage country, and old time music, as well as an occasional choral group, dulcimer duo, or Civil War era brass band. You never know what you will get, but the music will usually be interesting.

The string band groups that appear regularly at the Mountain Opry are the ones that are regularly booked at the local bluegrass and old time festivals: Valley Grass Express, Barren County, The Misfits, Curtis Hicks and the Old Tyme Strings, among many, many others.
