Following two sell-out Hall Two shows, Kings Place welcomes Talisk for their Hall One debut.
In their five years, the Scottish trio have stacked up several major awards for their explosively energetic yet artfully woven – and at all times enthralling – sound, including 2017’s Folk Band of the Year 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, captivating signature that has entranced audiences from the USA to Australia, and throughout the UK.
Appearances at world-leading festivals – including the Cambridge Folk Festival, Denmark’s Tønder, WOMAD UK, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Celtic Colours, Milwaukee Irish Festival and five successive outings at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections – have amassed a die-hard following, whilst the world’s folk and world music media have also lauded high praise on the trio. The release of their hotly anticipated second album, Beyond, was met with a five-star Top of the World review in Songlines, noting the band as ‘incredibly infectious and endearing… fresh, invigorating, accomplished and playfully frisky’.
