From humble beginnings in the Highlands of Scotland, to playing around the world, Elephant Sessions celebrated their 10th year as band in 2022. Creating a progressive blend of intricate tunes, with a bass and drum heavy backline, their music combines the very best of trad, funk and electronica, resulting in a new and exciting sound.

Since exploding on to the scene, the band have made live appearances at some of the most notable venues and festivals across the U.K, Europe, North America and Australia, including Glastonbury, Byron Bay Bluesfest, Colours of Ostrava and multiple headline sell-outs at Celtic Connections.

The band’s first three albums were released to critical acclaim and amassed widespread radio play across the world. Their new album ‘For The Night’ further built upon this success, charting at #3 in the Official Folk Album Chart and winning Album of the Year at the BBC Trad Music Awards 2022.

‘The versatility of Elephant Sessions is its strength. Passionate about their culture and their origins, these Scots are using their instruments like weapons to destroy clichés…We love them’ Rolling Stone Magazine
‘Absolutely superb…’ Chris Hawkins (BBC Radio 6 Music)
