    Talisman goes on!


    Despite the departure of Talisman’s lead singer in Dec 2018, Talisman played The Bell in Bath on Feb 23rd 2019 to a packed house.

    The band continues to be active and is looking forward to performing during the 2019 festival season.

    The band is currently preparing to record and release a new album early 2020.
