VIDEO: Abbey Rhode Bridgefest Show Packs Record Crowd at Sweet Berry Farm

Bridgefest 2011 came to Middletown Tuesday night, featuring the Portsmouth-based Beatles review band Abbey Rhode at Sweet Berry Farm.

Sweet Berry Farm's weekly outdoor summer concert series, now in its third year, has been attracting steady crowds throughout the summer—but none have compared in size to Tuesday night's most recent crowd.

Farm owner Jan Eckhart attributed the record turnout in part to the popularity and steady following behind the Portsmouth-based Beatles review band Abbey Rhode, as well as the marketing behind this week's music series spanning Aquidneck Island venues.

See the video above for highlights.
