Talisk are one of the fastest rising bands on the UK folk scene in recent year and are heading to Bristol in April.
Mohsen Amini (concertina), Hayley Keenan (fiddle) and Graeme Armstrong (guitar) create a captivating, energetic and dynamic sound that, in just a couple of years, has earned them multiple award wins, including Winners of the 2017 MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards’ Folk Band Of The Year, 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards’ Young Folk Award and nominees of the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards’ Horizon Award.
Atop their collective titles, Amini was the 2016 BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, adding to a trophy cabinet that far belies their years.
Touring appearances at world-leading festivals include the Cambridge Folk Festival, Denmark’s Tønder, Celtic Colours in Cape Breton, Fairport’s Cropredy Convention and Celtic Connections, as well as countless others alongside live sessions on both BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio Scotland’s flagship folk programmes.
Talisk play at the Bristol Folk House as part of their current tour on Sunday April 15.
