Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Ensemble

Ezekiel’s Wheels is a dynamic young klezmer ensemble from the Boston area that is getting international recognition for their virtuosity and infectious energy.The quintet’s unique style was forged in the subway stations and farmers’ markets of Boston, where the informal setting and ever-changing audience created an ideal environment for musical experimentation. After playing these informal gigs for some time, Ezekiel’s Wheels entered the 2012 Boston Jewish Music Festival’s “Klezmer Idol” competition, winning first place and a recording session. Seven months later, with a brand new EP under their belt, they won both the jury-awarded City Winery Prize for best klezmer ensemble and the Audience Pick Award at the third biennial International Jewish Music Festival in Amsterdam. They continue to perform regularly across New England, occasionally around the United States, and every-so-often around the world.

Rockport Holiday Farmers Market

Come to Rockport for great fresh produce and locally procured food for the holidays.

Christmas in Rockport this year has been Christmas-ier than I can ever remember it being in the 14 years I’ve been around (now you all know that I’m 14 years old, because of course I was born a Rockport native). You will get in the spirit in spite of yourself, even if the weather is so mild it’s more like June (which is always so freakin cold here) than December.
