Jazzy World Dance Band Moishe’s Bagel to Play The Met

The Met welcomes jazz-inflected klezmer and Balkan band Moishe’s Bagel on Sunday 30 October at 8pm.

The band features some of the best instrumentalists that Scotland has to offer, including Phil Alexander from Salsa Celtica alongside other great musicians from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Celtic Feet and the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra.

Formed in Edinburgh in 2003, the band combines the energy and passion of Eastern European folk music with the excitement and soul of improvisation.

“Consummate musicians, the degree of concentration and engagement with their music is palpable…this is high-class work” EdinburghGuide.com

Not too concerned with authenticity they let the interaction of their individual musical personalities create their own style; a sound that mixes klezmer, folk dance, jazz, eastern percussion and more, topped off with dazzling musicality and classical rigour. The result is a band which has the excitement of occasional improvisation, with an energy that keeps the music highly danceable, and visually and aurally exciting.

Tickets for the event are £14 or £12 concession. For more information or to book please call the ticket office on 0161 761 2216 or go on line www.themet.biz
