Largs Folk Nights featuring Talisk
In their five years, Sottish firebrands TALISK have stacked up several major awards for their explosively energetic yet artfully woven sound, including 2018’s Belhaven Bursary for Innovation & 2017’s Folk Band of the Year both at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, and a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award.
MOHSEN AMINI – the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards’ Musician of the Year 2018, HAYLEY KEENAN and GRAEME ARMSTRONG seamlessly meld concertina, fiddle and guitar to produce a multi-layered, enthralling signature that has effortlessly captivated audiences from the USA to Australia, and throughout the UK.
