About Our Performers: The Bristol County Fifes & Drums are dedicated to the preservation of ancient martial music. The 6- and 10-hole wooden fifes and rope tension drums are reminiscent of Revolutionary War-style instruments. Annually, the group performs in over a dozen local parades and events. Each year, the Bristol County Fifes and Drums travel to a different region for a concert tour. They have been featured performers at Mount Rushmore, London, England, Washington, D.C., and Walt Disney World, FL., among other wonderful places.
Please note: This event takes place outdoors. Facial coverings are not required, but are recommended for those who are not vaccinated.
