At the BBC Scotland Young Traditional Musician of The Year Competition held on the final weekend of the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow on Saturday 30th January 2016, the winner, from an outstanding shortlist, was Mohsen Amini, the concertina player in the Band, Talisk, our Guests on Thursday 11th February.

This is yet a further accolade for Talisk, a young Band destined for the top. In the short lifespan of the band of 18 months, they have already won a Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections in 2015, as well as the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award for 2015.
