One of Scotland’s brightest new folk bands will perform at the Blue Mountains Music Festival in Katoomba in March.
Hailing from the Highlands of Scotland, Elephant Sessions met at Newcastle University before exploding onto the indie folk scene with unparalleled effect.
The band’s critically acclaimed debut album, The Elusive Highland Beauty, amassed wide radio play across BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 6. The release of their award-winning album All We Have is Now in June 2017 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.
Elephant Sessions are a musical powerhouse, welding weapons grade grooves and guitar attack with quicksilver fiddle/mandolin melodies. The group fuses rich folk and trad influences with funk, rock and electronica in an instantly captivating, progressive, visceral blend.
Charting in the French download charts and selling bucket loads across Europe, All We Have is Now has firmly established the band as completely unique.
Since being named 'Up and Coming Artist of the Year' at the 2014 Trad Awards, in just a few short years the group has become renowned for breathtaking live shows throughout the UK and Europe, taking the festival scene well and truly by storm with appearances at Glastonbury, Denmark’s Tønder and a sold out headline show at Celtic Connections 2017.
Closing 2017 with sell out shows across the UK, the band also picked up 'Album of the Year' at the BBC Scots Trad awards.
The band begin their debut Australian tour in Adelaide on March 8 before performing at the Blue Mountains Music Festival from March 16-18.
