Welcome to my website! I’m Talis Kimberley, & I write & sing songs, usually with my splendid band: Chantelle sings warp to my weft, Simon adds the secret weapon – bassoon! – & I play guitar & bouzouki. We travel around the UK & beyond, performing mainly at folk clubs & festivals.

Whether you’re interested in my green/political songs, my history/literary songs, or those inspired by folklore, tea & cake, or knitting, I hope you find what you’re after here!

Interested in booking me & the band? Visit ‘Contacts’ for my media pack & associated information.

Want to know more, ask me something, or make a gig happen near you? Drop me a line, or come find me on Facebook or Twitter!

  • Some of you will have seen on my personal FB page that I'm hosting a house concert with the wonderful Betsy Tinney. She and I will be playing a set together and then Betsy will be doing a set with her cello and looper.

    There were a limited number of seats available to watch the house concert in person but, through modern technology, we should be able to stream the concert so more of you can see it than would fit into my kitchen. The live stream is an experiment for me and my home team to see if this is a viable way of reaching a wider audience so please keep your fingers crossed for it working and if it doesn't then one of my team will let you know.

    You can watch us performing from around 8:00pm (GMT) at www.twitch.tv/simonfairbourn.
