In their five years, Scottish firebrands Talisk have stacked up several major awards for their
explosively energetic yet artfully woven sound, including 2017’s 'Folk Band of the Year'
at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, and a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award.
Mohsen Amini - the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards’ Musician of the Year 2018', Hayley Keenan and
Graeme Armstrong seamlessly meld concertina, fiddle and guitar to produce a multi-layered,
enthralling signature that has effortlessly captivated audiences from the USA to Australia, and
throughout the UK.
Appearances at world-leading festivals - including the Cambridge Folk Festival, Denmark’s Tønder, WOMAD UK, Milwaukee Irish Festival and five successive outings at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections - have amassed a die-hard following, whilst the world’s folk and world music media have also lauded high credits upon the trio.
The release of their hotly anticipated second album, Beyond, in October 2018 was met with a five-star ‘Top of the World’ review in Songlines, praising the band as 'incredibly infectious and endearing… fresh, invigorating, accomplished and playfully frisky.'
