Elephant Sessions

Fiery Highland five-piece Elephant Sessions is a dynamo force on the folk scene. The tirelessly progressive group fuses rich traditional influences with rock, funk and electronica to generate a sound that is visceral and exhilarating. Featuring quicksilver fiddle/mandolin melodies alongside groove-heavy guitars, they were recently nominated as Live Act of the Year at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards 2016.
