A centuries-old tradition of afternoon tea endures at the Porter-Phelps-Huntington Museum with “A Perfect Spot of Tea” summer series continues Saturday, August 20th with musical guests The West County Jazz Trio.
The West County Jazz Trio plays mostly mainstream jazz music including some originals and with an occasional foray into standards and jazz Latin tunes. The group includes Judith Williams who comes from Greenfield, plays keyboards and sings on occasion; Tony Rice, who focuses the beat with his drums, and lives in Conway; and Tom Ulrich who plays double bass and comes from Ashfield. The trio has been together for five or six years as part of a quintet and other formats, and play here and there around Franklin County and beyond in a variety of settings and functions.
“A Perfect Spot of Tea” also features delicious pastries donated by local businesses, attentive service, and, of course, plenty of Earl Grey tea. For an additional fee, guests may also tour the Porter-Phelps-Huntington House Museum.
