The Ken Dircks Trio

Chase away the midwinter blues with music at our 1907 Carriage House. Join us for “Jams at Jay” in 2019! Informal listening every First Friday – casual attire encouraged. The acoustics are incredible and so are the artists!

Our 3rd concert brings the Ken Dircks Trio with special guest, Steph Chinn. The trio formed in 2016 when Ken, Nicole and Paul, as local Larchmont musical parents, were experimenting with a larger ensemble of New Orleans speakeasy jazz. Paul plunked “Beatrice” by Sam Rivers during a break; Ken followed along for a few notes on standup, and Nicole declared “hey we should do something with this!” The Ken Dircks Trio was born.
