Join us for a magical evening under the stars with the Jazz Duo, John Alaimo and Michael Tinus.
Island Culture …
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience two masters who have long been integral to the legendary music scene of Martha’s Vineyard.
Direct from across the waters, John Alaimo and Michael Tinus, will offer two performances at the Manship Residency this August.
One of those American success stories about which we never tire of hearing and which we rarely witness on this side of the Atlantic. John Alaimo presents a music that is true, delicate and full of charm, elegance and lightness, always played with feeling and conviction in the hopes of communicating and communing with his audience. The delicate, precise touch and clear articulation that John achieves is astonishing. Each time he sits at the piano, he produces a music lesson at the level of a master class . – Alain Gerber’s France Musique radio broadcast
Light refreshments will be provided.
SATURDAY performance: Doors open at 7 pm. The music will begin around 7:30 pm.
SUNDAY performance: Doors open at 5:30 pm. The music will begin around 6:00 pm.

EZEKIEL’S WHEELS PERFORMS FRIDAY AUGUST 20 AT MUSIC ON MEETINGHOUSE GREEN
The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation presents Ezekiel’s Wheels in a free Friday evening concert on Meetinghouse Green at the corner of Middle and Church Street, August 20 at 6:00 p.m.
Boston’s Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band has been captivating audiences around the world with their passionate virtuosity and contagious energy. Klezmer music has the familiarity of chamber music and the force of rowdy dance band music. Ezekiel’s Wheels’ contemporary spin on Jewish music enthralls audiences from elementary school students to the judges at the International Jewish Music Festival, who described them as ‘a true musical democracy’.
Free-will donations go to the evening’s featured local non-profit partner, the Grace Center, a day resource center for men and women in need of a safe and supportive environment in Gloucester, Salem and Beverly. Fresh pizza will be available from a local food vendor.
The 2021 summer music series is dedicated in memory of Harry Hintlian for his encouragement, generosity, and for making the Meetinghouse a net zero building. For more information, a full schedule of upcoming concerts, and to sign up for the GMF newsletter, visit www.gloucestermeetinghouse.org.
Ezekiel’s Wheels honed their craft in Boston’s farmer’s markets and subways stations, where the informal settings created ideal opportunities for musical experimentation. They succeeded in building up a community of fans and friends across the city. They have since fine-tuned their skills, and have performed at the Shalin Liu Performance Center, the Kennedy Center and at Yidstock. In 2017 they expanded their repertoire to include songs in Yiddish and English. Ezekiel’s Wheels features Jonathan Cannon (violin), Kirsten Lamb (double bass, lead vocals), Nat Seelen (clarinet), Pete Fanelli (trombone), and Abbie Reisman (violin, backing vocals), who sadly is not available to play at this concert.
Music on Meetinghouse Green, now in its sixth season, features nine free Friday evening concerts with great music, favorite foods from local vendors, and benefits a different North Shore non-profit organization each week through free-will donations from the audience. Concert goers bring lawn chairs and blankets to spread out across the spacious green. Performances are handicap accessible, parking on the Green is limited to persons with disabilities only.
