Don Kipper ​are a multi award-winning 7-piece ensemble playing and transforming a wide range of traditional musical forms reflecting the cultural diversity of North East London,​ from​Turkish and ​Greek Folk Musics to ​Romani music and ​Klezmer​. ​Separated from the shoal, two breakaway Kippers, ​The Tsvey Kipperim​, Daniel Gouly and Josh Middleton, delve deeply in the ​n​eshama (spirit) of Jewish music. With wit, joy, and sadness in equal measure, they take an audience on an odyssey through the ​D​obridens, ​T​erkishers, ​F​reylekhs, an​d ​Zhoks at the very core of the Klezmer repertoire.

Through the intimate interplay between accordion and the clarinet, these two musicians explore the potentials that a deep working relationship, a shared love for the tradition, and a profound friendship can create.
