2017 has been 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.
The release of their album ‘All We Have is Now’ in June of this year, was followed by live appearances at some of Europe’s most notable festivals. Audiences crowd surfed their way through the summer and marquee floors broke under the weight of bouncing fans. The Mercury nominated Alt J, along with BBC Radio 6 found themselves converted to the band’s unique brand of indie folk. Reviews from Rolling Stone Magazine sat alongside folk magazine coverage. Radio features accompanied documentaries and highlights shows on television stations.
Charting in the French download charts and selling bucket loads across Europe ‘All We Have is Now’ has firmly established this band as completely unique. Elephant Sessions transcend boundaries and shake the very foundations of expectation.
Closing the year with sell out shows across the UK, the band have just announced they have won Album of the Year at the 2017 BBC Scots Trad Music Awards.
2018 promises to be no different and opening the year with a show at the world renowned Celtic Connections festival, the band head over to Australia in March for what will be a debut tour of some of the nations most respected festivals.
