Moishe’s Bagel

Rip-roaring, foot-stomping, jazz-inflected klezmer and Balkan music from some of Scotland’s finest musicians. An intoxicating, life-affirming mix of Eastern European dance music, Middle Eastern rhythms and virtuoso performances.

Formed in Edinburgh in 2003, Moishe’s Bagel combines the energy and passion of Eastern European folk music with the excitement and soul of improvisation. Boasting some of the best instrumentalists that Scotland has to offer (Salsa Celtica, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Celtic Feet, Scottish National Jazz Orchestra), we are just as likely to see them jamming in a late night jazz den, grooving at a forest festival, or enthralling an upmarket concert hall.

The band’s debut album Don’t Spare the Horses has reached as far afield as Tel-Aviv, South America and Cape Town, with their second album Salt released in March 2007 previewed in a show supporting The Klezmatics at Glasgow’s Fruitmarket which received rave reviews in the press as part of the growing excitement about Moishe’s Bagel.

In September 2010 they released their long-awaited third album, titled Uncle Roland’s Flying Machine, with specially commissioned artwork by cartoonist Glen Baxter.
