Folk Band of the Year—Scots Trad Music Awards
Barely four years since their formation, Talisk has already stacked up several major awards for their pyrotechnic yet artfully woven sound, including Folk Band of the Year 2017 at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, and a 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award. Mohsen Amini’s concertina, Hayley Keenan’s fiddle and Graeme Armstrong’s guitar meld seamlessly together to produce a unique force that has taken them to many corners of Europe, throughout the UK on their own headline tours, to Canada, Australia and now Michigan! World-leading festival appearances include the Cambridge Folk Festival, Denmark’s Tønder, Celtic Colours in Cape Breton, Fairport’s Cropredy Convention, Celtic Connections and Brittany’s Festival Interceltique de Lorient. The trio’s captivating signature has also been recognized by the wider industry, through official showcase selections at both WOMEX 17 and Folk Alliance International 2018. They come to Michigan with a terrific new album, "Beyond."
