TALISK

Mohsen Amini (concertina), Hayley Keenan (fiddle) and Craig Irving(guitar) create a captivating, energetic and dynamic sound that, in little more than a year, has earned them multiple award wins and nationwide media and audience attention, as well a nomination for Up and Coming Artist of the Year at the 2015 MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards.

Most recently, Amini was crowned the 2016 BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, adding to their collective trophy cabinet that far belies their years.

So too do their gig credits, though – with appearances at world-leading festivals including the Cambridge Folk Festival, Denmark’s Tønder, Fairport’s Cropredy Convention and Celtic Connections, 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.

“Extraordinary”

Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

“A very impressive set from a group… [that] when it puts its collective foot to the floor creates an exciting sound that, in this case literally, drags an audience out of its seats.”
