Enter the construction zone!  Sparky’s Puppets will perform “Build a Better World” at the Barney Branch Library in Farmington on Monday, July 17 at 10:00 A.M.  In this show, the “Three Little Pigs” are hard at work on their houses, trying to protect themselves from the Big Bad Wolf.  And, in another story, a fisherman meets a talking fish that can make wishes come true.  The magic wishes make a cottage, a mansion, and a castle suddenly spring up on the beach!  Other tales will complete the program.

Sparky’s Puppets dramatize favorite children’s stories with colorful hand puppets, lively humor and plenty of audience participation.  For over 37 years, they have delighted children and family audiences throughout New England.  This show was especially created for the library’s summer reading program theme.

Back by popular demand!

Drawing on a wide variety of traditional music forms, the Bluelights have created a new musical style respecting equally the past and present. A typical Bluelights performance might include original music, early jazz, blues, swing, standards, jug band, gospel, pop music from the turn of the century and roots rock‘n’roll. Starting in 1986, they continue to perform at festivals, concerts and clubs throughout North America. Their most recent triumph was to win the 2008 State of CT Blues Challenge and the opportunity to represent their state in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee.

*IN THE EVENT OF RAIN, CONCERT WILL BE HELD INDOORS ON THE 2ND FLOOR OF THE BARNEY LIBRARY.
