Book Now Folk Band of the Year 2017: Talisk

Thursday 5 April at 7:30 pm

Winners of the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award and 2017 Folk Band of the Year, at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, Talisk are one of the fastest rising bands on the UK folk scene.

Mohsen Amini (concertina), Hayley Keenan (fiddle) and Craig Irving (guitar) create a captivating, energetic and dynamic sound that, in little more than a couple of years, has earned them multiple award wins and nationwide media and audience praise. In 2016, Amini was crowned BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, adding to their collective trophy cabinet that far belies their years. So too does their performance history, though – with appearances at world-leading festivals including the Cambridge Folk Festival, Fairport’s Cropredy Convention and Denmark’s Tønder, as well as live sessions on both BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio Scotland’s flagship folk programmes, theirs is a star firmly, and rapidly, on the ascent.

With a second album in the pipeline, alongside heavy touring throughout 2018 and beyond, theirs remains a star firmly on the ascent. Talisk are set to raise the roof of the Laundrama in Bowness!

“Extraordinary” / Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
“Doubling the power of three” / The Scotsman
“…completely blown away by the sheer dexterity and musicianship” / The Living Tradition
“setting scary standards” / Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 2
