Indie folk-rock artists The Talbott Brothers were in the middle of a national tour in support of their second full-length studio album “Ghost Talker,” when the world changed as a result of COVID-19. Nick and Tyler Talbott were scheduled to perform this month at the Milford Arts Council (MAC), but due to the virus outbreak, the show was postponed. Now the duo, who specialize in well-crafted, original material, are scheduled to perform at the MAC on Sept. 10. The songwriting siblings, originally from Nebraska and now based in Oregon, have been making music together their entire lives. They chose to pursue music professionally while in college, and that decision has led them to record two well-received studio albums of original material while building a growing fan-base. Nick Talbott took time out recently to talk about The Talbott Brothers, and what it’s like to be a recording artist and touring musician during the pandemic.
