Manran/Elephant Sessions

Share this with:

A fantastic double bill of two bands at the top of their game, both nominated as Best Live Act at the 2016 Scots Trad Awards.

Elephant Sessions

With a central ethos built around the band's traditional celtic roots, fiery tunes from fiddle, accordion, flute, uilleann and Highland bagpipes bind powerfully to a rhythm section awash with elements of funk, jazz and rock to create some of the most innovative and joyous instrumental music around. Coupled with songs in both Gaelic and English that undergo the same musical mixology, it's easy to understand why Mànran are in such high demand.

'a thrilling live act, Mànran is one of Scotland's best traditional outfits and their star is most definitely on the rise. Watch them go.' Daily Record


Winners of Up And Coming Act Of The Year at the 2014 Scots Trad Awards, The Elephant Sessions create a progressive blend of intricate tunes, engulfing guitars, monstrous bass and pounding drums. Already renowned for their breathtaking live shows, the band climb to new heights with the release of their debut album, The Elusive Highland Beauty.

Join us in the foyer bar for a tune and a drink at our informal session after the show.
