From the sleeve notes: A meaty dish to get the digestive system a kick start. Like a good dose of caffeine, these tunes will get you up and jigging about – you’ll not be able to sit still.
Playing to sell-out audiences at folk festivals and boutique music venues alike, Taliska are a force to be reckoned with! Taliska captivates audiences with the much loved music of Scotland weaving musical magic through soaring songs and airs, and then enthusiastically roars to life with sprightly, foot tapping jigs and reels!
The line-up includes the stunning fiddle playing of Angus Downing, the refined playing of Geoff Jones on pipes, whistles and bodhrán, the melodiously mellow sounds of the cello played by Louise Godwin, and the stirringly beautiful vocals of Claire Patti, accompanied by her mellifluous harp, French horn and piano accordion playing. Driving this Scottish musical vessel on guitar is Marcus de Rijk whose vocals, both solo and combined in harmony with Claire, rounds out the band’s understated but undeniable depth of musicianship.
