2018 was a remarkable year for Elephant Sessions. The band who hail from the Highlands of Scotland and who met at the Newcastle University Folk degree have exploded onto the indie folk scene with unparalleled effect.

Fusing rich folk and trad influences with funk, rock, and electronica, fiery highland five-piece Elephant Sessions are a musical power house, welding weapons-grade grooves and guitar attack with quicksilver fiddle/mandolin melodies. 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.

‘Absolutely superb…’ Chris Hawkins (BBC Radio 6)
