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 powerhouse, welding weapons-grade grooves and guitar attack with quicksilver fiddle/mandolin melodies. The group fuses rich folk and trad influences with rock, funk and electronica in an instantly captivating, progressive, visceral blend. Since being named Up and Coming Artist of the Year at the 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 and a sold out headline show at Celtic Connections 2017. 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 - due for release on 19th May is already being touted as one of the most anticipated of 2017.
