Artists biography

A graduate of Newcastle University's Folk and Traditional music degree, Alasdair Taylor is a multi instramentalist and one of Scotland's leading mandolin talents with a touring and gig CV far beyond his years.

The band he fronts, Elephant Sessions, were crowned Up and Coming Act of the Year at the MG Alba Scots Trad music awards and nominated for the Live Act of the Year in 2016

As a composer, he has written music for his band that has been used on BBC documentaries and in festival adverts such as Celtic Connections and Festival Interceltique de Lorient.

When not playing with Elephant Sessions, Alasdair spends a lot of his time teaching and playing in his home town of Inverness, in the Scottish Highlands.
