Elephant Sessions are confirmed for 2022 Gathering! 

We continue the preparation for the Platinum Jubilee Games and we are delighted to confirm that the winners of the BBC Scots Trad Music Awards Album of the Year 2017 and Live Act of the Year 2018 the Elephant Sessions are confirmed for Sunday 21st August 2022! 

Hailing from the Highlands the band formed in 2012.  Euan, Alasdair, Mark, Seth and Greg have created a progressive blend of intricate tunes, engulfing guitars, with a bass and drum heavy backline, their music combines the very best of trad, funk and electronica resulting in a new and exciting sound.

Already renowned for their breath-taking live shows the band began to gain success not just within the U.K but also found themselves beginning to perform at some of the most prestigious European Festivals. Since then, the band have made live appearances at some of the most notable venues and festivals across the U.K, Europe and Australia, including Glastonbury, Byron Bay Bluesfest, Colours of Ostrava and multiple headline sell-outs at Celtic Connections.

Mercury prize winning band Alt-J, along with BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 6, found themselves converted to the band’s unique brand of indie folk.  Reviews from Rolling Stone Magazine sat alongside folk magazine coverage.  The band scooped the coveted BBC MG Alba Album of the Year for ‘All We Have is Now’ and were shortlisted for the Scottish Album of the Year (SAY) Award shortly after.  In 2018, the band also picked up the Live Act of the Year award at the BBC Scots Trad Music Awards, received a nomination for 'Best Group' in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to Market Park in 2022 and we continue to work harder than ever to make sure this years Games are bigger and better than ever after our two year absence.
