Bristol County Fifes & Drums to perform Linden Place Gardens
BRISTOL — Linden Place Museum opens the Fourth of July season with The Bristol County Fifes and Drums concert in the beautiful, historic Linden Place gardens.
The performance will take place on Thursday, June 8, at 6 p.m.
The Bristol County Fifes and Drums (BCFD) of Bristol, RI are the official field music for the Bristol Train of Artillery. They are dedicated to the preservation of ancient martial music.
The six-hole, two-piece fifes and wooden shell, rope tension drums they use are reminiscent of Revolutionary War style instruments. They appear in period costume and perform to music of the 18th and 19th centuries, complete with musket fire and narration.
Annually the group can be seen in over a dozen local parades and events throughout Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts. The highlight of their summer schedule is their hometown 4th of July parade.
Tickets for the concert are $5 for general admission and free Linden Place members. Guests are welcome to bring a picnic and chairs or blankets. Reservations can be made by contacting Linden Place at 401-253- 0390.
