Following their sold-out Hall One and Hall Two shows, Kings Place welcomes Talisk for another much-anticipated performance.
In their five years, Talisk 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 outing’s 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’.
This is a London Roots Festival and Kings Place promotion.
