Elephant Sessions Break Floors & Traditions

Known for putting on raucous shows and turning Scottish traditional music on its head, Scotland's Elephant Sessions are festival favorites who have earned praise in Rolling Stone. In 2018, the band won Live Act of the Year from the Scot Trad Music Awards and were shortlisted for Scottish Album of the Year. With 4 out of 5 bandmates hailing from the Scottish Highlands, we talk about Elephant Sessions' role in the wave of young musicians rewriting the rulebook on cool when it comes to traditional sounds. We recorded their performance at GloWorm Recording in Glasgow, as part of World Cafe's Sense of Place series.
