Explore the private gardens at Sakonnet in Little Compton, open for self-guided tours and plant sales to benefit the Garden Conservancy, Sakonnet, and local wild meadow restoration efforts. This English-style cottage garden features a series of enchanting garden rooms. The acre-sized main woodland garden is subdivided into a series of fourteen spaces separated by high windbreak hedges and stone walls. The whole is described as an outdoor folly; each space has its own mood and horticultural objective. Memorial Day weekend should occur at the garden’s peak of spring bloom. Late tulips and hundreds of trilliums and other woodland wildflowers should be in flower. Blue poppies, blue camassias, the gaudy azalea hedge and rhododendron punchbowl, a confection of pinks and whites should be in full bloom. No reservations required; rain or shine. For More Information: See www.opendaysprogram.org or call The Garden Conservancy toll-free weekdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST, 1-888-842-2442.

The Sunday Night Jammers are a group of (mostly) instrumental (mostly) musicians, who play (mostly) Celtic-inspired dance music. Our music is (mostly) for couple dances, such as waltzes, hambos, polkas, and schottisches.
Now, to clear up those “mostly”s:
1) Sometimes we sing…or at least some of us sing.
2) Some of us are very serious musicians, some are duffers, many are in between. We are VERY polite about each other’s errors.
3) We started with English, Scottish, Irish, Canadian, and New England dance music, but we have gotten more international as the months go by.
4) After Scandinavian and German couple dances, a few Israeli line dances appeared, followed by some Greek and Balkan dances with “interesting” time signatures.
In brief, all of us have learned a lot, and we welcome others to come play, teach, learn, and, in general, have fun!
