Moishe's Bagel

  • Settle Victoria Hall 24 Kirkgate Settle, England, BD24 9DZ United Kingdom (map)

World folk 5-piece Moishe’s Bagel are undeniably one of the most exciting live bands around.

In the 13 years they have been together, pianist Phil Alexander, violinist Greg Lawson, accordion player Pete Garnett, bass player Mario Caribe and percussionist Guy Nicolson have developed a great chemistry as musicians enabling them to produce a highly original, deeply involving sound – mined from old folk traditions from around the world. Moishe’s Bagel’s sound is hard to categorise in the best possible way!

Each member brings unique sensibilities to the group. This includes klezmer from Phil, classical and world folk from Greg, Scottish folk and tango stylings from Pete, latin jazz flavours from Mario, complemented by a unique percussion sound including Indian tabla and Middle Eastern darabuka from Guy.

The result is an evocative sound that can truly transport an audience. Each Bagels concert is a journey filled with joy, excitement and raw emotion that leaves every audience with a feeling that they have witnessed something magical and truly greater than the sum of its parts.

‘This brilliantly accomplished and adventurous five-piece emphatically puts the “class” into “unclassifiable”
