Nominees in the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards' Horizon Award, and winners of the 2015 Young Folk Award, Talisk are one of the fastest rising bands on the UK folk scene.

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 across the country. 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.

So too does their touring history, though with appearances at world-leading festivals including the Cambridge Folk Festival, Denmark's Tønder, Celtic Colours in Cape Breton, Fairport's Cropredy Convention and Celtic Connections, as well as countiess others alongside live sessions on both BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio Scotland's flagship folk programmes. With further tours and showcases throughout Europe and the US, theirs is a star firmly, and rapidly, on the ascent.

Extraordinary - Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

Doubling the power of three - The Scotsman

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. - The Herald

...completely blown away by the sheer dexterity and musicianship - The Living Tradition

setting scary standards - Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 3
