Formed in the Scottish Highlands in 2012, the Elephant Sessions combine the best bits of trad, funk and electronica in their sound. Euan Smillie (fiddle), Alasdair Taylor (mandolin), Mark Bruce (guitar), Seth Tinsley (bass, synth) and Greg Barry (drums, samples) won the BBC MG Alba Album of the Year for their second record All We Have is Now, and were also shortlisted for the prestigious Scottish Album of the Year Award. The band followed that success with a Live Act of the Year award in 2018, picking up the first ever Belhaven Bursary Award, and a Scots Trad Awards album of the year nomination for their new album What Makes You.
