WINNERS 2018 BBC SCOTS TRAD LIVE ACT OF THE YEAR
FINALISTS 2018 BBC RADIO 2 FOLK AWARDS – BEST BAND


‘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)
Elephant Sessions, who hail from the Highlands of Scotland have exploded onto the indie folk scene with unparalleled effect.
The release of their album ‘All We Have is Now’ in 2017, was followed by live appearances at some of the world’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’ firmly established this band as completely unique. Elephant Sessions transcend boundaries and shake the very foundations of expectation.
2018 has seen awards in abundance. Opening the year as winners of album of the year at the BBC Scotland Trad awards, they went on to be finalists as Best Group at the BBC Radio 2 awards. In May of this year Belhaven Brewery got together with the band to award the first ever Belhaven Bursary for innovation in music. The bursary amount matches the Mercury Music prize and was awarded in recognition of their unique and outstanding sound. It is accompanied by the bands favourite beer ‘Elephant Sessions IPA’! which was launched in May 2018.
On August 1st of this year, the band also found themselves shortlisted for Scottish Album of the Year – an award covering every genre of music from indie, blues and rock to pop, folk and the individual sound that is Elephant sessions!
Closing 2018 with a bunch of shows in the Scottish Highlands they will bring in the New Year with a show at the world renowned Edinburgh Hogmanay Celebrations.
Currently finalizing their third album due for release in March 2019, the band head to the US and Australia in April before embarking on their UK album tour in May.
