a Rockport New Year's Eve Summer Sampler
See a preview of this year's upcoming New Year's Eve celebration! Rockport New Year’s Eve (RNYE) is a family-friendly year-end celebration of the arts held in downtown Rockport, Massachusetts annually since 1997. Halls, churches, town offices, and some streets are taken over by happy revelers celebrating the New Year. This special performance will showcase two performers that will appear at Rockport New Year’s Eve 2021. One is a veteran RNYE musical favorite, and the other is an exciting hip-hop dance group that will be making their first RNYE appearance. This event will take place on the outdoor stage at Windhover Center for the Performing Arts, and is presented with the help of Gloucester Stage Company, which is in residence at Windhover this summer.

Named after a Victorian children’s game, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? can time-travel from 1960s New Orleans soul back to the minstrels of Medieval France before landing in the Tin Pan Alley era of NYC. Led by the gender-defying voice of 3rian King, the ensemble delivers its own brand of smoky cabaret, neo-soul and acoustic noir, sounding something like Tom Waits and Amy Winehouse performing in a French cafe. What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? is known for its original songs which marry rich lyrical imagery with a cinematic sensibility, exploring themes of love, spirituality, sexuality, and identity. Whether stripped down for acoustic coffeehouses and living room concerts or immersive multimedia shows in clubs and theaters, Mr. Fox brings honesty, energy, and emotional authenticity to every performance.
