Creating a progressive blend of intricate tunes, engulfing guitars, with a bass and drum heavy backline, Elephant Sessions music combines the very best of trad, funk and electronica. Hailing from the Highlands of Scotland the band formed in 2012. They are comprised of Euan Smillie (fiddle), Alasdair Taylor (mandolin), Mark Bruce (guitar), Seth Tinsley (bass, synth) and Greg Barry (drums, samples).
Elephant Sessions transcend boundaries and shake the very foundations of expectation. Winners of multiple awards including the Best Band Category in the BBC 2 Folk Awards 2018, 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. Currently finalizing their third album, due for release in May 2019, Elephant Sessions have exploded onto the indie folk scene with unparalleled effect and we can’t wait to have them back at the World Ceilidh!
