Ground-breaking, chart-topping, genre-bending, globetrotting and instantly enthralling, Talisk rank highly amongst the most in-demand folk-based groups to emerge from Scotland. Together, Mohsen Amini, Graeme Armstrong and Benedict Morris fuse concertina, guitar and fiddle to produce a truly innovative, multi-layered sound and a captivating live show. Alongside extensive touring, Talisk have stacked up major awards for their explosively energetic, artfully woven music and are lauded for their exemplary technical ability.

The Trouble Notes

The Trouble Notes are a progressive world folk band known for their explosive energy. Formed in 2013 by violinist Bennet Cerven, their shows are packed full of surprises, adding to the energetic sounds at the heart of their repertoire. They have toured extensively in Europe and North America, and have played on many of Europe’s large festival stages, and with major international acts like Jethro Tull, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and America. Their second studio album, ‘Liberty Awaits’ is described as a transcendent exploration and fusion of various folk styles, showcasing the rich tapestry of our diverse world.

Eve Belle

Donegal’s Eve Belle is a bilingual singer-songwriter and television presenter. Since the release of her debut album 'In Between Moments' she has found her way back to her lyrical roots, returning to a musical style which puts emotion and honesty to the fore. Her cover of Coldplay's Violet Hill received praise from Chris Martin himself, while her first independent EP ‘Sharp Relief’ has received praise for its lyrical prowess.


Drawing inspiration from both Irish and American traditional music, DUG aims to create a transatlantic blend that reflects the musical heritages of both its members. It’s the new venture of songwriter Lorkin O’Reilly and California native Jonny Pickett.  This is where American old-time meets Irish folk, as they tread the line between those two worlds. Having spent the past decade in Upstate NY releasing albums and touring extensively, Lorkin moved to Dublin in 2022 to start this exciting music chapter with Jonny.

Sally in the Woods

Liverpool born singer and mandola player, Sophie Bostock, brought Sally in the Woods into being after spending lockdown living on a narrowboat on the canals and rivers of southwest England. Her songs are a radical retelling of stories passed down through the English, Scottish, Irish and American folk traditions, focusing on the strong women that have carried us to where we are now. After studying traditional Irish music in Dublin and honing her singing skills, the return to the river provided the perfect place to delve deeply into traditional music archives.
