Folk Band of the Year: BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2017; and BBC Radio 2 Folk Award 2015 and Horizon Award 2017
"The musicianship is phenomenal, the enthusiasm infectious" Folk Radio UK
"A rockin’ powerhouse" The Herald
Talisk are one of the fastest rising bands on the UK folk scene in recent years.
Mohsen Amini (concertina), Hayley Keenan (fiddle) and Graeme Armstrong (guitar) create a captivating, energetic and dynamic sound that, in just a couple of years, has earned them multiple award wins, unwavering nationwide media praise, and standing ovations far and wide. Atop their collective titles, Amini was the 2016 BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, adding to a trophy cabinet that far belies their years.
They will be supported on the evening by Stranraer trad singer Robyn Stapleton and Grape Bar favourites the Cl'yholers.
Supported by EventScotland Year of Young People 2018 event fund and the Holywood Trust
