Formed in Edinburgh fifteen years ago, Moishe’s Bagel combines the energy and passion of world folk music with the excitement and soul of improvisation. For this concert the band will be joined by a very special guest, Scottish singer Fiona Hunter. Fiona is one of Scotland’s foremost traditional singers and is fast garnering a reputation as a highly gifted song interpreter. Having developed a particular enthusiasm for the songs of the Scottish Travellers, she has worked with members of the Perth-shire based Stewart family, learning her craft first-hand from the last tradition-bearers of this celebrated folksong dynasty.
Fiona and the Bagels have been working on a new project that pits her Scottish and Gaelic repertoire against their characteristically diverse world folk sound.
