One such venue is the Woodbine Opry. The Woodbine Opry is located in Woodbine, Georgia north of Jacksonville, Florida. The Opry was started by Hoydt Drury in 2001 as a fund raiser for maintaining the old Woodbine School. The show supports the old school with a 50/50 and a dessert raffle. Hoydt serves as emcee and is one of the pickers. The Opry has grown into a two night operation. Friday night is bluegrass and Saturday night is traditional country. There were a dozen or so musicians playing to a full house on Friday night. People were in attendance from as far away as Rochester, Minnesota and Ontario, Canada.
A young man named Jackson Bethune highlighted the evening. He is 15 years old and plays banjo, guitar, and bass – and all very well. This is a show worth seeing if you are in the soth Georgia/northeast Florida are.
