Information:

Recently nominated as Live Act of the Year at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2016, fiery highland five-piece Elephant Sessions are a musical power house, welding weapons grade grooves and guitar attack with quicksilver fiddle/mandolin melodies.
The group fuses rich folk and trad influences with funk, rock and electronica in an instantly captivating, progressive, visceral blend. Since being named Up and Coming Artist of the Year at 2014 Trad Awards, in just a few short years the group have already become renowned for breathtaking live shows throughout the UK and Europe, taking the festival scene well and truly by storm with appearances at Glastonbury, Denmark’s Tønder, a sold out headline show at Celtic Connections 2017 and a 18 show run at the Showcase Scotland Expo in Lorient 2017 where they managed to break the floor. Twice.
The band’s critically acclaimed debut album, The Elusive Highland Beauty, amassed wide radio play across BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 6, whilst their follow-up – All We Have Is Now – released earlier this year is already being met with mass critical acclaim and has been long listed for Album of the Year at the MG Alba Scots Trad Awards 2017.
‘These Scots are using their instruments to destroy clichés. We love them!’ – Rolling Stone Magazine
‘Absolutely Superb’ – Chris Hawkins, BBC Radio 6
“Almost definitely the gig of the festival [Celtic Connections]” – Ticketmaster
