In Autumn 2016 Tell Tale Tusk reached the final of the Bath Folk Festival- New Shoots competition. Watch the performance of traditional English folk song, Cuckoo's Nest, that helped get them there.
Recorded live at No. 14 Bacon Street in April 2016, Tell Tale Tusk perform a riveting set of reimagined folk songs and original compositions. From pastoral tales of the passing seasons to bawdy ballads of lascivious sailors, the album brings to life an intimate series of stories old and new.
The Quartet's debut studio EP is in the making. Having finished recording at Bally Studios the record is in the final stages of being mixed and mastered. The final product will be an excting collection of original compositions and intricate arrangements of traditional folk songs.
