Moishe's Bagel

Mary Ann Kennedy with new releases from across the globe, plus a studio session with Scottish klezmer band Moishe's Bagel, who play tracks from their new album 'Uncle Roland's Flying Machine'.

Moishe's Bagel play Jewish klezmer, but only one and a half of them is Jewish. They are a Scottish band, but only one of them grew up in Scotland. So it's no surprise that their klezmer embraces influences from far and wide, a unique blend of Balkan grooves with jazz, folk and eastern percussion, all delivered with great virtuosity. The group is led by classically-trained pianist Phil Alexander, and includes violinist Greg Lawson, who also plays with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra; leading accordionist Pete Garnett; Guy Nicolson, who specialises in oriental percussion; and Brazilian bass player Mario Caribe.
