One of Scotland’s most popular folk-based groups to emerge in the last decade, chart-toppers Talisk have toured the world stacking up major awards for their explosively energetic yet artfully woven sound, including 'Folk Band of the Year' at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award, and the Belhaven Bursary for Innovation.
Mohsen Amini (BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards’ Musician of the Year 2018), Hayley Keenan and Graeme Armstrong fuse concertina, fiddle and guitar to produce a ground-breaking, multi-layered and instantly enthralling signature sound that has captivated audiences around the globe.
Appearances at leading festivals - including Cambridge Folk Festival, Denmark’s Tønder Festival, the Rainforest World Music Festival, WOMADs UK, three back-to-back years at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and five successive outings at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections - have amassed a die-hard following, whilst folk and world music media have also lauded high praise upon the genre-bending trio.
Released in 2018, their hotly anticipated second album, Beyond, quickly rose to No.1 in the iTunes world music charts and was met with a five-star ‘Top of the World’ review in leading world music magazine Songlines, who praised the band as 'incredibly infectious and endearing…fresh, invigorating, accomplished'.
