In their five years, Scottish firebrands Talisk have stacked up several major awards for their explosively energetic yet artfully woven sound, including 2017’s Folk Band of the Year at the BBC Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, and a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award.


Frequent appearances at international and local folk festivals have amassed a die-hard following, whilst the world’s folk and world music media have also lauded high credits upon the trio.


The release of their hotly anticipated second album, Beyond, was met with a five-star Top of the World review in Songlines, praising the band as “incredibly infectious and endearing… fresh, invigorating, accomplished and playfully frisky.”
