More information about Talisk tickets

Ground-breaking, chart-topping, genre-bending, globetrotting, instantly enthralling... it's little wonder that Talisk rank highly amongst the most in-demand folk-based groups to emerge from Scotland in the last decade and more.

Mohsen Amini (BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards' Musician of the Year), Graeme Armstrong and Benedict Morris (BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year) fuse concertina, guitar and fiddle to produce a truly innovative, multi-layered signature that has captivated audiences around the globe. At its core, three seemingly acoustic instruments - but in the hands of three master craftsmen; one unmistakable, bold sound and a captivating live show.

Alongside extensive touring, Talisk have stacked up major awards for their explosively energetic, artfully woven sound - including Folk Band of the Year at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award, and the Belhaven Bursary for Innovation. Appearances at leading festivals across multiple continents have amassed a die-hard following - including closing out Saturday night's main stage at the 2019 Cambridge Folk Festival, Denmark's T√łnder Festival, the Rainforest World Music Festival in Malaysian Borneo, WOMADs UK, Chile and Las Palmas, Edmonton Folk Festival, Milwaukee Irish Festival, three back-to-back years at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and seven appearances at Glasgow's Celtic Connections.

The band welcomed 2022 with a TV audience of over a million, performing to widespread acclaim on BBC1's Hogmanay 2022 - shortly followed by a sold-out show in Glasgow's iconic Old Fruitmarket, the release of their hotly anticipated third album (earning their second five-star Top of the World review in Songlines and taking their streaming figures into multiple millions) before returning to extensive touring across the USA, UK and Europe.
