Ava Barber

Country legend singer, lovely Ava Barber has been wowing audiences in Branson, Missouri.  She began her professional career at age 10 in Knoxville, Tennessee.  Lawrence Welk discovered Ava’s talent in 1973 and hired her to perform on The Lawrence Welk Show until its closing in 1982. 

During her years on the show, and afterwards, Ava has had numerous successes as a recording artist. She has had two Top 20 singles on the country music charts; Waiting At The End Of Your Run and Bucket To The South; her albums have sold millions worldwide. She has also been on many popular television shows such as Nashville Now and Crook & Chase.

While working on the The Lawrence Welk Show, she met Dick Dale; they worked and toured together after the show ended.  Together, they owned and operated the Rainbow Theater in Pigeon Forge, TN from 1990 to 1996.

She appeared on the Smoky Mountain Hayride Show in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.  She then moved on to perform in Branson, Missouri at the Welk Theater.  She has also toured with many of the stars from The Lawrence Welk Show throughout the United States and Canada, headlined at major Nevada hotels, appeared as a guest on several TV shows, and made several appearances at the Grand Ole Opry.  

Most recently she has been performing in the “Grand Ladies Show: Stars of the Grand Ole Opry” at the God and Country Theatre in Branson, Missouri.  Her natural southern charm, delightful personality and powerful, melodic voice will please even the toughest audiences!  Ava and Bob Havens (the featured trombonist from The Lawrence Welk Show) have joined together to present a show consisting of Country, Pop and Dixieland Jazz music.  They are backed by a 7 piece band.  This is great entertainment when you are searching for “a little bit of everything!”
