So prolific was Frank Zappa that it is nearly impossible to present a representative sample of his work in just one concert. Nevertheless, Pygmy Twylyte present you with an unmissable evening of Zappa 'classics', if indeed such things exist. Zappa's 70's and 80's work is the main showcase, with occasional forays into 60's material. Expect “well known” tunes such as "Cosmik Debris", "Stinkfoot" and “Outside Now”, interspersed with instrumentals like "Black Napkins" and “Zoot Allures”. This seven-strong band will surely bring something to suit everyone’s tastes (and maybe even a little of Zappa's trademark wit on the side...) ARF!Suitable for age 14 plus

Moishe’s Bagel began in 2003, the lucky accident of an Edinburgh-based Chilean tango singer and four like-minded musicians. A shared love of klezmer, jazz and latin music soon saw them onstage at Henry’s Cellar Bar with a few tunes and a lot of enthusiasm. Since then, the band has regularly toured the UK, Ireland, and the Czech Republic, notching up sellout gigs at the Jazz Cafe, Sage Gateshead, St George’s Bristol, Edinburgh Queens Hall and many many more. We’re delighted to welcome these virtuoso musicians to Biggar.
