Talisk

Winners of the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, 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.

“Extraordinary!” Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
