‘This fearless 5-piece emphatically puts the ‘class’ into ‘unclassifiable‘ The Scotsman
‘True originals’ The Guardian
Thrillingly original cutting-edge klezmer and world folk music from some of Scotland’s finest musicians. An intoxicating, life-affirming mix of Eastern European dance music, Middle Eastern rhythms and virtuoso performances. Combining the energy and passion of world folk music with the excitement and soul of improvisation, the band will draw you in, turn you inside out, and leave you smiling uncontrollably – all in the space of one tune.
Moishe’s Bagel began in 2003, the lucky accident of an Edinburgh-based Chilean tango singer and four like-minded musicians. A shared love of klezmer, jazz and Latin music soon saw us onstage at Henry’s Cellar Bar. Since then, the band has regularly toured the UK, Ireland, and the Czech Republic, notching up sell out gigs at the Sage Gateshead, St George’s Bristol, Edinburgh Queens Hall and many, many more. Along the way, we have managed to record four CDs, earning us a Songlines Top of the World and Sunday Telegraph top 10 world albums.
