Talisk are one of the fastest rising bands on the British folk scene. Mohsen Amini (concertina), Hayley Keenan (fiddle) and Craig Irving (guitar) create a captivating, energetic and dynamic sound that, in just a couple of years, has earned them multiple award wins and nationwide media and audience attention.
Most recently, Amini reigned as the 2016 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, with appearances at leading festivals including Celtic Connections, two successive visits to Denmark’s Tønder, Fairport’s Cropredy Convention and countless others, 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.
