Praised by critics both individually and collectively for their virtuosity and passion for Klezmer music, the five musicians of Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band return for the eighth season of Music on Meetinghouse Green. Their repertoire includes traditional instrumental renditions and original compositions of Klezmer-inspired music as well as songs in Yiddish and English. A favorite of local audiences, they have played at the Kennedy Center and Yidstock, and continue to build an international following with their performance at the Third Biennial International Jewish Music Festival in Amsterdam where they received the Audience Pick Award. The five performers feature Abigale Reisman on violin and vocals; Jonathan Cannon on violin; Kristen Lamb on double bass and vocals; Nat Seelen on clarinet, and Pete Fanelli on trombone. An accomplished violinist and composer, Abigale Reisman is the music director at Temple Ahavat Achim in Gloucester.
