"Taliska is a delightful group which captivated the audiences at the 2010 Celtica Festival in Port Adelaide in 2010. The melding of all the instruments and personalities makes for a musical experience you would not want to miss. The off-beat humour of Scottish fiddler, Colin MacLeod, combined with his excellent musicianship and on-stage antics, the beautiful vocals of Celtic harpist, Claire Patti and guitarist, Marc de Rijk, singing the songs of Robert Burns, and the distinctive sound of the small pipes, played by Geoff Jones, is a combination which has the audience listening quietly and intently and then roaring to life to the exuberance of a set of Scottish jigs and reels. Taliska is definitely a crowd-pleaser for any event.Suzanne Laslett - Artistic Director (Celtica Festival, Port Adelaide, SA)
