They played at Tønder Festival in 2016, and even then they were a band on their way up at top speed. In 2017 The Elephant Sessions released their second album All We Have Is Now, which was praised by reviewers and won Album Of The Year at BBC Scots Trad Music Awards. They are not strangers to awards from that quarter, since they won Up And Coming Act of the Year in 2014. The five musicians in The Elephant Sessions come from the Highlands and declare their musical loyalty to traditional Scottish folk music. The music has deep roots, but this bandet have no qualms about bringing new elements to the table, forging their own brand of neo-folk from Scotland. The Elephant Sessions have been compared to colleagues such as Shooglenifty and Peatbog Fearies. Rolling Stone Magazine wrote of them: “These Scots use their instruments as weapons to destroy clichés. We love them!” The band tour constantly round Europe and Britain, and are back at Tønder Festival 2018.
