Some of Scotland’s finest musicians, Moishe’s Bagel, are bringing their thrillingly original cutting-edge klezmer and world folk music to Knockengorroch. 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.
It all started in 2003 with 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 them onstage with a few tunes and a lot of enthusiasm. Since then, the band have released four CDs, earning them a Songlines Top of the World and Sunday Telegraph top 10 world albums.
The band have regularly toured their ‘fearless’ and ‘unclassifiable’ (The Scotsman) sound, gigging around the UK, Ireland, and the Czech Republic, notching up sellout shows. Up next, Australia!
We can’t wait to give them a big, warm Knockengorroch welcome.
