Talisk 

Thursday 19th May 7.30pm | Taliesin Live

Ground-breaking, chart-topping, genre-bending, instantly enthralling… it’s little wonder that Talisk rank highly amongst the most in-demand folk-based groups to emerge from Scotland in the last decade.

Alongside extensive touring, and appearances at leading festivals across multiple continents, Talisk have stacked up major awards for their explosively energetic, artfully woven sound. Mohsen Amini (BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards’ Musician of the Year 2018), Graeme Armstrong and Benedict Morris  (BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2019), fuse concertina, guitar and fiddle to produce an innovative, multi-layered signature that captivates audiences worldwide. At its core, three seemingly acoustic instruments - in the hands of three master craftsmen; one unmistakable, bold sound and captivating live show.  

 

“Extraordinary”  Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

“the technical ability of each member is clear in their energetic, dynamic sound” Songlines

“incredible!” Rolling Stone (Australia)

“Stunning! Our audience loved them, XPN loved them …this year’s Thursday night concert was the best attended ever.  They were amazing - it was a love fest all round!” Lisa Schwartz, Philadelphia Folk Festival
