What’s on this season

Moishe’s Bagel combines the energy and passion of world folk with the excitement and soul of improvisation.

An intoxicating, life-affirming mix of Eastern European dance music, Middle Eastern rhythms and virtuoso performances.

A lucky accident of an Edinburgh-based Chilean tango singer and four like-minded musicians, with a shared love of klezmer, jazz and latin music soon saw them onstage at Henry’s Cellar Bar and from there very quickly regularly touring the UK, Ireland, and the Czech Republic, notching up sellout gigs at the Jazz Cafe, Sage Gateshead, St George’s Bristol, Edinburgh Queen’s Hall and many more… Along the way, they’ve managed to record four CDs, earning a Songlines Top of the World and a place in the Sunday Telegraph Top 10 World Albums. In 2015, they composed and performed an original score to the Soviet silent film classic Salt for Svanetia and have now recorded it for their new CD.

Boasting some of the best instrumentalists that Scotland has to offer and all with a classical as well as folk background, their portfolio includes a PhD in ethnomusicology, training in Indian classical and Latin American music, rock, theatre music and many other skills. The band will draw you in, turn you inside out, and leave you smiling – all in the space of one tune. Expect some brand new pieces along with plenty of favourites.

“Exhilarating, full-flavoured stuff, often breath-takingly intricate, this brilliantly accomplished and adventurous five-piece emphatically puts the “class” into “unclassifiable.” The Scotsman
