“This is a brilliantly unique sound – a duo of piano accordion and percussion defiantly unbounded by British traditions as they stride into ‘world-music.’”
Taking the audience on a musical journey around the world, English instrumental duo The Hut People (Sam Pirt and Gary Hammond) have firmly established themselves as one of the best loved acts on the UK folk scene.
Mixing global rhythms with folk tunes from Quebec to Spain and Scandinavia to Sussex, this is a quirky celebration of our rich musical heritage.
This is a show like nothing you’ve ever seen before – expect feel-good dancing tunes, audience participation, step dancing, Quebecois foot-percussion, all played with good humour aplenty.
Last year, The Hut People release their 4th studio album on the Fellside label entitled ‘Routes’.
They also supported award-winning trio The Young’uns on their 21-date nationwide tour – gaining a plethora of new fans up and down the country.
“The festival season is nearly upon us, and with The Hut People gracing many of this years bashes, their infectious ‘World Folk’ will surely be winning them many new fans” Songlines
