Sandwich, MA: New Sound in Town

The sound of music is back in Sandwich Village, where our Cape Cod bed and breakfast is located. When we first moved to the beautiful historic Town Hall Square district in Sandwich Village nine years ago, Jarvis and Main streets hosted several musical options. On the north corner was a piano store and adjacent to that, a small music shop.  Upstairs across the street, in what is now the Brown Jug Wine Shop, was a recording studio. On an afternoon walk through the village, it was common to hear the sounds of piano and guitar lessons or music tracks being laid down at the studio.

The piano store moved to 6A and the other music shops are long gone, but music has returned to Jarvis street. Most of the summer, the Brown Jug has hosted music on its’ patio on Sunday afternoons, featuring the talented Gregg Harper.

Gregg Harper
Gregg’s mellow, Burl Ives like voice and acoustic guitar fill the patio with life. He entertains listeners with great folk, blues, roots, and jazz. Both his original songs and his covers of standards are done in his own memorable style. He makes each arrangement his own, from Cat Stevens to Bob Dylan, to catchy island tunes.

A life-long musician, Gregg has written and produced his own music. His CD, “Dragonfly” features such pieces as What We Want, Walk In Beauty, The Affair, and the title song, Dragonfly. This cd is available at various places around Cape Cod and from Gregg directly at the Brown Jug on Sunday afternoons.

It has been a joy to take a brief break from our inn keeping chores and walk over to the Brown Jug to enjoy a bottle of wine, a beautiful plate of cheese, and the smooth sounds of Greg Harper, al fresco with friends and guests on a Sunday afternoon.

The sound of music has returned to Sandwich Village. So, before the summer ends, meet us on the patio at the Brown Jug from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm on a Sunday afternoon to relax and enjoy the sounds and tasty delights offered in this little slice of heaven.
