We are a group of singers dedicated to the sharing of stories through music. Talisman was created to explore and perform substantive, cultural music. This has become our mantra as we strive to give voice to the vast collection of human stories told through rich and vibrant song. We appreciate the great challenge in musically expressing the genuine roots of the songs we sing, but we are committed to bringing these songs to life as best our abilities allow.
