This event has passed.

Multi award-winning Glasgow-based trio Talisk charge folk music with an explosive new energy, an electrifying reminder of the genre’s roots in dance and coming together.

From sweat-soaked, breakneck reels to plaintive ballads, their distinctive sound is built on the interplay of three astonishing musicians: Graeme Armstrong (guitar), BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Musician of the Year 2018 Mohsen Amini on concertina, and new member Benedict Morris, BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2019, on fiddle.

Since the pandemic forced them to cut short a US tour, they’ve streamed some brilliant shows from locations including Mohsen’s bedroom and garage. But their return to performance in real life – and their Howard Assembly Room debut – will be true cause for celebration.
