WHY: The Historic New Orleans Collection's spring concert series opens on Friday, March 15, with the classic country rock sounds of New Orleans's own Country Fried.

With numerous awards and accolades to their credit, Country Fried has shared its intricate harmonies and American-roots sound throughout the southeastern U.S., Texas and Colorado. Their 2011 release, "Life is Fine," was nominated for "Best Country Album" by OffBeat magazine, and their music has been featured on HBO's hit show "True Blood." Band members include Brian "Big Country" Ayres (banjo, vocals), Joel "Dr. Rocky Mountainhigh" Webb (upright bass), Todd "Whisky T" McNulty (lead guitar, vocals), Taylor "Red Stick" Garrett (rhythm guitar, vocals), Matt "Sarge" Guza (drums, vocals) and Eileen "Crazy Horse" Guza (fiddle, vocals).

The Historic New Orleans Collection is proud to have the quintet open its sixth season of Concerts in the Courtyard. Since 2008, these events have offered a fun, casual way to kick off the weekend. Each show features live outdoor performances by Louisiana musicians as well as cocktails. In addition, the downstairs museum galleries are open as is The Shop at The Collection.

Drinks for the March event will be announced at a later date. The spring concert series will continue with shows on April 19, May 17 and June 21. Stay tuned for details.

Admission to Concerts in the Courtyard is $10 for the public, free for members of The Collection, and includes three complimentary cocktails. Memberships begin at $35 and are valid for one year. Guests must be 21 or older to enter. Capacity is limited and the event is designed for a standing audience. Outside chairs, food and beverages are not permitted on the premises.
