Jams with Ken Dircks Hits High Note

No One Left High and Dry

On April 5, the Ken Dircks Trio, featuring Nicole Alifante singing, Paul Huang on piano and Ken Dircks on standup bass plus Steph Chinn on trumpet, drew a welcoming crowd of new and longtime fans to hear a stellar rendition of Radiohead’s High & Dry along with other unique jazz arrangements. Thank you to Anne Mottola for introducing us to this amazing group! We love making local connections! The horse bay of our 1907 Carriage house was packed again for this 3rd Jams at Jay.

Daffodil Show Grows and Glows!

This highly anticipated show organized by the Little Garden Club of Rye (LGC) gets more resplendent every year! Preceding the Nantucket and Greenwich Daffodil Shows, it attracts local daffodil growers and competitive exhibitors from all over Fairfield County and increasingly from areas as far away as Shelter Island and East Hampton! Congratulations to all the winners for sharing their exceptional green talents with the public and to the Little Garden Club of Rye for educating us all about the joy of growing these deer resistant beauties from bulb to bloom! Read more about the day and see photos here!
