The Ohio Valley Opry (OVO) has been entertaining audiences at the Twin City Opera House in McConnelsville since 2000. Founded by Marvin and Deana Clark, the band puts on a show featuring traditional country, bluegrass, and gospel music favorites.Part of the show’s charm comes from its authenticity. While the performances are perfected, the on-stage interactions come off as unpracticed and genuine. Introductions of the guest vocalists often sound like conversations between friends, as the OVO's warm interaction with the audience has a natural and easy flow.
This approach showcases the sense of community evident not only in this corner of the state, but within the band as well.
And although the band produces a professional show on the stage, they still come across like your neighbors.Part variety show, part traditional country, the Ohio Valley Opry pulls from both local, regional, and national talent to fill out their rotating lineup of performers. The Ohio Valley Opry show has enjoyed much regional success in the Applachian foothills of Ohio, and they have entertained thousands of guests in the last 21 years!
