TALISK for Cropredy!!
Each year, Fairport's Cropredy Convention supports the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award by offering the winner a slot at Cropredy. The young musicians play an afternoon set on the main stage and over the years the slot has proved very popular with audience and performers alike.
This year's winner is Talisk, an energetic Glasgow-based trio playing a mix of Irish and Scottish traditional music. The group features Mohsen Amini on concertina, Hayley Keenan on fiddle and Craig Irving on guitar. Talisk's award success has landed them other slots this summer including Cambridge Folk Festival and Towersey Village Festival.
"We're really looking forward to playing at Cropredy," says Mohsen. "The festival has such a great reputation. We know it will be a really big crowd but we can't wait." More...
