In just five years, Scottish firebrands Talisk have stunned audiences and critics worldwide with their explosively energetic yet artfully woven sound. Talisk’s top-notch instrumental wizards don’t just play folk music – they take it to another realm. The Glasgow acoustic trio of Mohsen Amini (BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards’ Musician of the Year 2018), Hayley Keenan, and Graeme Armstrong fuse concertina (a small accordion-like instrument), fiddle, and guitar into an enthralling trinity that’s earned them a die-hard festival following and a No.1 album on the iTunes world music charts. Fresh, fun, and full of oomph – you’d never think a concertina could rock so hard. When Talisk performs live, there’s visceral human joy pumping that “literally, drags an audience out of its seats.” -The Glasgow Herald. Don’t fiddle around…see Talisk blast traditional into the future, right here and now.
