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.
