Fife & Drum Taptoe Concert Series returns to Old Barracks Museum

The Old Barracks Museum, located at 101 Barrack Street in Trenton, NJ, celebrates history, music, and warm summer evenings with the fourth annual Taptoe Concert Series on Friday, July 8th and Friday, July 29th. The gates open at 7:00pm and the music starts at dusk to magically and musically transport you to the 18th century. Reserved seating is available on their balconies or bring a lawn chair and enjoy the performance from the ground.

The Taptoe recreates a summer evening in long-ago Trenton, when the musick and the guard would march through a garrison town signaling the time for the taverns to close their taps and for the soldiers to return to their barracks. The evening will be illuminated with dramatic lighting by torches, candles, and spotlights.
