THE MOORS
The Moors are a five-piece Hastings-based band. Starting from roots in Medieval Spain and ancient Anatolia, their musical journey exuberantly blends klezmer and Balkan beats, with a dash of ska and folk-rock along the way. Sax/flute/melodica, fiddle, electric guitar, bass guitar/vocals and drums – you add the dancing!

KLEZMER BRUNCH with KLEZMIC RAYS
The Klezmic Rays are a family band with Jewish connections that have been variously described as "lively and melodic", "awesome", and "exciting." They play body-shifting, foot-tapping arrangements of classic klezmer tunes and appear even at breakfast time, impeccably turned out in black fedoras and shades under the creative leadership of fiddle supremo, Helen Adam. Guaranteed to pull your thrill strings!

CLARION   
From the Malvern Hills, the love of playing folk music, especially from Greece and other parts of Eastern Europe has brought Clarion together. With accordions, clarinets, guitar, and bass (and occasionally singing if the mood takes them ) they aim to take audiences on a musical journey through the Balkan countries, exploring rhythms and exotic melodies of the Klezmer tradition.
