Hailing from the Highlands of Scotland, the band Elephant Sessions gives traditional Scottish music an indie twist. They’re also known for their foot-stomping live shows, which earned them the Live Act of the Year award at last year’s Scots Trad Music Awards. We’ll hear some of that today in a live performance recorded for World Cafe’s Sense of Place series in Glasgow. And host Talia Schlanger joins Elephant Sessions in their home country to learn their story. That’s coming up, on the next World Cafe.
World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Comcast Cable channel 961 all over the Bay Area / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App from the App Store & Google Play.
