An infectious blend of folk from around the world . “The only band to have been asked back 8 times consecutively – because they’re so good!” Swaledale Festival. Taking the audience on a musical journey around the World, English instrumental duo The Hut People (Sam Pirt and Gary Hammond) have over the last 4 years proved to be one of THE most unique, entertaining and best-loved acts on the UK folk scene today. Mixing global rhythms with folk tunes from Quebec to Spain, Scandinavia to Sussex and everywhere in between, this is a quirky celebration of our rich musical heritage – and it works so well! This is a show like nothing you’ve ever seen before – expect feel-good dancing tunes, audience participation, step dancing, Quebecois foot-percussion (whilst playing the accordion!) and humour aplenty. With 2017 already looking to be their biggest year to date, don’t miss this fantastic duo! “a bewildering array of percussion and accordion-fired compositions….truly infectious!” R2 “This is a brilliantly unique sound – a duo of piano accordion and percussion defiantly unbounded by British traditions as they stride into world music.” THE SCOTSMAN
