BristolOn Tuesday, July 15, the Farmington Libraries will host its second outdoor concert of the 2014 season when crowd favorite, the Bristol Old Tyme Fiddlers return for another summer performance. This event will take place at 6:30 p.m. on the lawn of the Barney Library, located at 71 Main Street.

The Bristol Old Tyme Fiddlers was founded in 1972 and is a group of up to 75 members whose purpose is to preserve and promote the art of the old tyme fiddling that has been passed down from generation to generation by ear.  This old New England Fiddle Band style is what makes the club unique and what makes for a toe-tapping, hand clapping, fun-filled concert for music lovers of all ages.
