Bristol First Night plans "really big show"

This years New Years Eve celebration promises to be better than ever with over 14 local performers playing two venues in Bristol. It is very exciting to have this kind of talent and energy right here in Bristol for New Years Eve said David Brynn, event volunteer. There is something for everyone this year, from late afternoon right through the evening in both Holley Hall and the Baptist Church on the green. Starting at 3:30 p.m. at Holley Hall, New Havens 2Point5 group will kick off the celebration. This is a new tradition for Best Night, said Kim Callahan, event volunteer. We want young people to be a part of this event and what better way to start the evening than with this trio of elementary kids performing original pieces. Immediately after 2Point5, the Swing Peepers will take the stage at Holley Hall for some great family entertainment while at the Baptist Church, the Very Merry Players will fill the church with four- part recorder music. Other performers for the event include, Jack Malzac and Fran Robideau, The Beamish Boys, Allegro Chorus, the Hibernators, the TSR band (with members of the Bristol Band), Justin Bouvier and Helen Weston, The Unbroken Circle, NorthStar, Womensing and capping off the evening, Jeh Kulu- a West African drum and dance theater group. Buttons for Best Night are available in Bristol for $5/ea. until they are gone at Cubbers, Kimball's, Cliff Music, Green Mountain Shoe and Apparel, In Stitches, Livingston's Farm, Mountain Greens, Emerald Rose, Greetings and Honeylights.
