Bristol Mini Porch Music Fest

Posted by

FREE! A mini Bristol Porchfest with musician duos and small groups performing acoustically or with minimal amplification to entertain porch hosts and strolling spectators to celebrate music and community!

Across the US there are hundreds of these Porchfests, where communities open their porches to local talent to provide a free, fun, family-friendly neighborhood entertainment.


Tyler & Ryan is the duo of Bristol brothers Tyler and Ryan Falcoa. They have become You Tube sensations since publishing their 2015 video with scenes of Bristol, performing originals and covers for New England venues and television shows such as “The Voice” and “America’s Got Talent.”

Sinner’s Pie is a local trio performing acoustic music in the style of Americana, folk, & bluegrass. The band was co-founded by Nelson Hiller and Carol Campbell. Both Carol and Nelson sing, play guitar and mandolin. The trio is rounded out with Dave Carney on bass.

Los Duderinos is Ben Coerper, David Passafiume, Jr., Greg Ferreira, and Atticus Allen. They play eclectic/improv/covers/originals (bluegrass, jazz, folk, funk, jams)

Dukes of Dixie is Band Leader Al DeAndrade on trumpet/flugelhorn; Carl Hosband on clarinet/saxophone; Lee Bernardo on drums; Al Marano on accordion; and Jan Marquez vocals. Audiences have been enjoying their Dixieland jazz music for more than 20 years.

Proposed rain date for the event is Sunday, September 30. For more information, please email
