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.

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.


This event is made possible by Richard P. Garmany through a grant awarded by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. The Farmington Libraries will be hosting a variety of performances throughout the year as part of the Richard P. Garmany Music Series.
