Don Kipper are a multi award-winning innovative ensemble playing and transforming a wide range of traditional musical forms, from Turkish Fasıl and Greek Rebetiko to Romani music and Klezmer. While we attempt to root ourselves deeply in these traditions we always seek to explore radical interpretations and taut arrangements full of complex harmonies, polyrhythms and imaginative improvisation. Since 2013, we have released our First and Second albums, played two European Tours, and won the titles of both the Moshe Beregovski Award for best Klezmer Newcomers and The World Music Network’s Battle of the Bands.
We have extensive experience playing at UK and European festivals (Shambala UK, Mandrea IT, Hünsruck Open Art DE, Art in Action UK, to name but a few…) and venues (from The Vortex Jazz Club, King’s Place and Rich Mix in London, to venues in Austria, Germany, Italy and Czech Republic) and are acclaimed for our high octane shows that can guarantee an audience of ecstatic dancers!

The venue is open from 10:30am, serving food from 12-3pm and 6-10pm. Happy Hour is 5-7pm!
