A BAND is back on the Artsreach circuit by popular demand.

Moishe's Bagel will bring cutting-edge klezmer and folk music to Burton Bradstock Village Hall on Friday October 6.

The Scottish foursome whipped up a foot-stomping frenzy when they last toured Dorset with Artsreach in 2013, and now due to very popular demand they are returning for two special concerts as part of the Artsreach autumn programme, which is supported by local solicitors Blanchards Bailey.

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 saw the band onstage at Henry’s Cellar Bar with a few tunes and a lot of enthusiasm. Since then, Moishe’s Bagel has regularly toured the UK, Ireland, and the Czech Republic, notching up sellout gigs at the Jazz Cafe, Sage Gateshead, St George’s Bristol, Edinburgh Queens Hall and many more.

Along the way, they have recorded four albums, earning them a Songlines ‘Top of the World’ and Sunday Telegraph top 10 world albums. In 2015, the band was invited to compose and perform an original score to the Soviet silent film classic Salt for Svanetia.

Boasting some of the best musicians that Scotland has to offer (from Salsa Celtica, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Celtic Feet and the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra), this five-piece band is equally at home grooving at a forest festival, enthralling an up-market concert hall or a raising the roof of a small village hall.

Moishe's Bagel produces rip-roaring, foot-stomping, jazz-inflected klezmer and Balkan music, creating an intoxicating, life-affirming mix of Eastern European dance music, Middle Eastern rhythms and virtuoso performances.
